I looked around and found the best price for TifBlair Centipede grass seed here at DoMyOwnPestControl. I had previously RoundUp and tilled my front yard and raked away all the dead weed debris. I used the whole 5lbs bag of seed in my front yard with a spreader and covered the lawn with about an 1/8"-1/4" of peatmoss and set my sprinklers to water for 15 minutes, 4 times a day. That along with a few good rainy days have germinated a tremendous amount of grass seed in a little over a weeks time. Only problem I had was discovering the day after seeding my lawn was that I had a lot of ants picking up the seed. I ran out of day light while spreading the peatmoss the day before and couldn't see how thin I was applying it. I reapplied insecticide on the whole lawn and added more peatmoss. There's definitely some thin spots in a large area where most of the ants were.
I wanted some centipede seed, but nobody in Tampa that I could find was carrying TifBlair. I saved some money and saved some time by ordering from DoMyOwn. The next time I need some agricultural material, I will skip the searching-around and go to the DoMyOwn web site.
At what season in the year do l plant and/or overseed Centipede grass with TifBlair Centipede Grass Seed?
Per the manufacturers instructions for TifBlair Centipede Grass Seed for best results plant in March or April, but quicker germination will occur May through July. It is not recommended for planting between August and November due to the closeness of winter. For more accurate timing you could check with the master gardener at your local cooperative extension office as they are more familiar with your region and best seeding times.
Is this package of seeds from this years seeds or last seasons seeds?
I am worried that if they were older if they would germinate like normal or if being older would that affect their germination rate.
