Seeded Bahia in Spring with Little Return (Tampa, FL)
I seeded about twenty pounds of Bahia in my front yard during the spring, because my lawn had bare batches amongst my old Bahia. However, I have yet to see many seedlings appear. Weren't they suppose to sprout within the first few weeks of planting? I purchased the seed from Wal-Mart the week prior, so it should have been viable. I only watered about once a week, in addition to the normal rains that we received. The only spot where I saw some success was a dirt patch in the middle of my yard. I know that the seeds wanted more water, but is it normal for almost none of the seed to have sprouted by natural means? Is Bahia hard to plant by seed? Does it normally take forever for it to sprout?
