No Fescue Germination after 10 days
Last Saturday on March 8, I used a seeder to seed my front lawn with Vigoro RTF tall Fescue. I used 20 lbs on
5400 sqft. I covered any bare areas with peat moss and began watering 3 times a day for 15-20 minutes at a time. I have not seen any germination now going on 10 days.
I am wondering if I did anything wrong or if its just too cold. Our daytime temps are between 50 and 65 with nighttime temps being 30-40. I also over seeded late last fall and didn't see any germination, but I chalked it up to seeding to late as there was frost the next week. (I just moved into my house and it was the only time I had.)
There is no weedkiller of any kind on my lawn and I mowed to the Lowest setting before seeding. I also aerated last fall.
If the temps are still too cold will the seed wait until it warms up even if I am watering or have I done something wrong?
