I'm prepping for my fall repairs. When looking for the best price for herbicides, I discovered EH Griffith. While at their site I decided to check out what seed they have to offer. Their TTTF mix includes the following:
15% Traverse SRP Tall Fescue
15% Inferno Tall Fescue
15% Cochise IV Tall Fescue
15% Firecracker LS Tall Fescue
15% Hemi Tall Fescue
18% Bullseye Tall Fescue
7.00% Brooklawn Kentucky Bluegrass
I'm not thrilled about the Bluegrass in the mix...I have and was planning for 100% TTTF, so, question 1 - am I being too picky?
But the bigger question - Help me decipher the 112 page NTEP data! I started researching the cultivars in the above mix and found the NTEP data. There are so many different tests from so many different areas on so many different cultivars. How do I determine what is best for my location (Jersey shore)? Should I only focus on the NJ tests, or perhaps certain areas have more reliable data than others? Are there specific tests I should be looking at? Is there a summary (if so I can't find it)? I just want to buy the best seed for my lawn...HELP!!
