Re: Pointless double Pre-M after Tenacity

yeah, I know. I will have to dig up the labels on it and see rehash what it says on -new growth-. I guess it will also depend if my -dormant seeding- goes potentially give me a 10-14 day faster germ. rate into the spring season I suppose.

Pointless double Pre-M after Tenacity

If I do a broadcast spray on tenacity on a small area I overseed, give it take 3-4 weeks later, would it be pointless/useless to lay down something like Prodiamine after Tenacity's life window. Depending on how much growth I see out of the overseed, I might just do a second app of Tenacity

Favorite Lopper

In my stash of loppers - Felco, ARS Bypass. One Barnel Anvil. Did not like the Felco's Bypass Lopper - was cutting down some shrub woody stems - dormant time, right before end frost/spring. The other business end is serrated. Ended up using my ARS loppers for the task. I think I might order me a Pro...

Re: Dormant Seeding Work for you.

I see we're all roughly in the same area.... I dropped seed last week. Since it's been so mild, I wanted to drop seed so that it could see some thaw cycles as I don't see much freezing going into March and it's Feb. already I am concerned about potential seed rot.......typical wet winters/early spri...

Seed Storage - Breath or Not ?

I've got a chamber vac ----for food stuff.
For storing leftover seed, does it need to be in a cool dry place with some level of non-airtighness to breathe/vent/etc. Kinda like storing Spring Bulbs ?

Or is it better if I just vac seal them in a bag ?

Re: Dormant Seeding Work for you.

I put down seed today on a couple of bare patches. With this fairly mild winter, I was not sure if going into Feb, I would be seeing some dipping temps. I can't picture the soil freezing to the point where it -draws- the seed in for better S2S contact, but I know there are lotsa posts on it. Will be...

Off topic....I know seed mixes are regional at the big box store. Getting spring fever here so browsing the aisles. The same -blend- name in what appears similar date batches (maybe off by 2 months), the blend is different in 7lb bag versus 3lb. I can understand how corporate dictates blend changes ...

Re: Dormant Seeding Work for you.

Yes, on soil temps Are we concluding then dormant seeding is - beneficial for S2S contact, due to frost heavinging substrate - potential faster germination / establishment with (slower germinating cultivars) I kinda wanna say the germination time of KBG isn't too shabby in late fall. A week -10 days...

Re: Dormant Seeding Work for you.

Is it plausible to also dormant seed to early. I see the post on putting seed on snow - in the recent replies in this thread
If it remains too wet for too long before germination, any concerns about rot ?

Re: Dormant Seeding Work for you.

While I have notobserved if there is -actual- movement in the soil when freeze/thaw occurs, I definitely do see said effects in all areas where there is mulch. Onc can observe pockets/displacement/breaks in the mulch - but then again, mulch is fairly light compared to soil that also has knitted turf...

I've been considering buying a Garden Weasel just for this task - could always just hand cultivate once seed down (but I'm getting old and bending over ain't fun) Ha. I can't correlate the possibility however, that the timing of dormant seeding and the a-typical winds/seed getting displaced/scattere...

Dormant Seeding Work for you.

Patching bare spots for me worked best with established pot plugs. Seeded in pots/grew throughout summer, transplanted plugs in fall to bare spots. Overseeding bare spots in early fall does work - between the germination time with KBG, roots, establishment, etc, the pot plugs seemed to work out bett...

Spot seeding . Yes, was considering as a option to just tenacity 18 inches out per spot and the rest would ger prodia. Wasn't sure if others have just applied it and their experiences on young blades
