Growing Bahiagrass from seed in sandy soil
I live in central Florida. I recently cleared my backyard and am planning to grow bahiagrass from seed. I recently purchased one 50lb bag of brown top millet and one 50lb bag of bahiagrass seed along with two 25lb bags of 10:10:10 fertilizer. The clerk at the feed and seed store suggested I use equal parts of millet with bahia seed and equal parts fertilizer and till them into my sandy soil. The clerk suggested that I spread the seed evenly over my back yard and water with a sprinkler several times a day. My question is, if I do this, will I be wasting my time trying to grow grass in sandy soil, or should I use some sort of soil amendment that would hold water better then the currently completely sandy soil? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
