This grass seed mixture is specifically formulated to produce a good quality shade tolerant lawn seed mixture. This mixture will tolerate fairly close mowing but prefers the blade height to be around 20mm – 30mm. If your garden doesn’t get much sunlight at all then this is the mix for you. This is simply the best grass seed for shady areas.

Premium shade is great for those who want a high quality lawn in heavy shade. It’s made up of fescues, bentgrass and smooth meadow grass, leaving the perfect finish.

Professional use: Landscaping, shady tees, reclamation and high hedged or walled gardens and parks, tree plantations

    I waited a few weeks before writing this to see how well the grass seed worked. I am pleased to say that it is the only grass seed that I have purchased for shady areas that has been a success

    Overseeded shady part of lawn, again netted and watered daily. Now at end of 4th week with not a lot to show, quite disappointing really in comparison to the Sprogs and Dogs part of the lawn. I appreciate it is probably a finer and slower growing seed than the S&D, but it definitely has not taken in the majority of areas. I will probably overseed this with the S&D and see if I can at least get a bit of growth in this area.

    This was purchased to cover ‘moss’ patches on my lawn. It’s the first seed i have found the happily grows in our garden. We are south facing, but have alot of tree cover. This is my third order, as i now want the rest of the lawn to look as good as the ‘patches’!!!!

    It is still too early to sew the lawn seed especially with the poor weather that we have been experiencing of late. However, I have purchased this product from you on a previous occasion and was very pleased with result. I am confident that this will be the case this time around when better growing conditions arrive.

    Wrong item dispatched – fast grass instead of premium shade, and no sign of 2 packs of wild flower seeds that were ordered and paid for either. Raised with company who were very apologetic and who promised to deliver the correct items. Still waiting.

    The service was excellent and the product was well packed. Only managed to sow the seed last Thursday as the weather was not conducive to the process, but I am sure that now it is much warmer the seeds will soon germinate and within a week green shoots will appear. Thank you again.
