Rye Grass Not Germinating
Good afternoon everyone. I've put out a good bit of rye grass on several bare areas of my lawn. We're talking about 1000 sq. ft. and I've put down no less than 20lbs of Futura perennial rye seed. I started in late October and re-seeded on a monthly basis (three seedings so far). I've got sprouts randomly throughout the area, but no solid coverage. Water has not been an issue, the seeds had good soil contact were not washed out. In fact, I can still see most of them pressed into the surface of the dirt laughing at me! I can only guess that the temperature drop is holding them back, but has only been cold for about a month and we've had many days near 70. What am I doing wrong???
