Seeding Tips:

Winter Sports Renovation Mix/ Summer Sports Mix/ Cricket Outfield Mix

For renovating pitches – a renovation programme should definitely include overseeding. For a stretched budget – overseed the most worn areas. For more information on how to overseed  – refer to: Overseeding a lawn, grassed area.

For winter overseeding sports fields – If there has been a dry spring, further restricting water encourages the seedlings to root down through the surface in search of moisture and nutrients. An early fertiliser e.g. Phoenix Outfield No. 3 – application can get seeds off to a good start – this ensures effective nutrient uptake and thus strong establishment.

Whatever the financial constraints, a cut in seed rates is really just wasting money, far better to assess the pitch areas that really need overseeding and treat them with 20‐25g/sqm of seed for stronger establishment and more value for money.
