PREPARATION & USAGE
Use from March to October once the threat of frost has passed.
Multi Purpose Lawn Seed makes it easy to create a whole new lawn, over-seed worn existing lawns or just for patching up. For new lawns, check individual boxes for the area each pack size will cover. For the best results for over-seeding use approx 20 g/m2 and use 30 g/m2 for bare patches.
- 1. Prepare the ground: rake the area and remove all weeds, stones and dead grass.
- 2. Shake the box to mix the seeds.
- 3. Use the sprinkler on the side of the box to broadcast seeds – create a criss-cross pattern by sowing half the seed from left to right then the rest top to bottom.
- 4. Soak the entire area with a fine spray and keep the soil moist while the seedlings establish over the next few weeks.
You can trim the grass once it’s 5-8 cm in height. Each time you mow, lower the blade height a level until it’s at 2.5 cm ensuring you never mow more than 1/3 of growth off at any one time.
You can start feeding
your new lawn after the second mowing to ensure it remains healthy. Feeding enables your lawn to recover from wear ad tear from active children and pets.
CHILDREN AND PETS
Miracle-Gro EverGreen Multi Purpose Lawn Seed is fine to use in gardens where children and pets are. We advise that you leave newly seeded areas undisturbed until they’re established.
Keep out of reach of children. Always read instructions before use. Wash hands after use.
