Water Requirements for Dormant Seeding
Hello all! In mid-October I had decent success with the slit seeding of the fescue. In some areas it's still a little thin. So, naturally, I want more seed down.
Desire: Slit seed more TTTF asap to hit the ground running in spring.
Problem: Unusually warm winter so far. Oklahoma ~55-60 during the day and ~38-40 at night. NO snowfall.
Question: If I continue and slit-seed in late January or early Feb, would the current watering schedule cause premature germination? Would I have to cut water until warmer temps? If water is cut, I fear for he survival of my late-fall planted grass.
Thanks in advance! Let me know if I can clarify anything.
