When you sow seed, you need to choose an appropriate application rate. Application rates depend on the type of mixture, its intended use, and whether you are seeding from scratch or overseeding.
We’ve included grass seed and wildflower seed in this guide. Don’t forget that on all seed product pages, the ‘Lawn Calculator’ is in place to work out how much seed you will need. Simply enter your lawn dimensions, and then select overseeding or reseeding. You can read more about the lawn calculator here.
|Seeding from scratch||70||2 1/2|
Notes: For an early or late sowing, increase the rate by approximately 5-10g. For a very hardwearing grass area, increase the rate by up to 20g.
|Grass containing mixtures||2.5||1/12|
|Wildflower only mixtures||1||1/25|
