when and how to propagate St. Augustine seed?
I have half a backyard full of St. Augustine, and today I just noticed one patch that is producing seed pods. Since the other half of the yard is bare, I'd like to help out the colonization process by spreading the seeds in the bare areas.
So, how can I have the best chance of having the seeds "take"? As far as planting, I'm guessing I just break up and moisten the earth, pop the seeds off into it, then lightly rake it level? But how can I recognize when the seeds are most ripe for planting??
I know that St. A doesn't take very well, but if even 5% of the seeds sprouted, it would help my project immensely.
For what it's worth, here's a picture of where the pods are now in their development:
I appreciate any help! My lawn thanks you... :-)
