Pleased with the outcome so far. But very patchy and erratic in germination Some areas will need reseeding in the autumn 👍

Thank you for taking the time to post the photos - pictures look great! The patches should fill in fairly quickly - they are just caused by minor differences in moisture/firmness in the soil which affect the germination.

Veronica Lawrence
Quality seeds

They seem to grow fairly quickly and strongly, also, they seem to spread which it doesn’t happen with many shop bought seeds, I will buy again thank you!

We are so glad to hear that our Grass Seed for Shaded Areas is living up to your expectations! Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Not the result I was hoping for
The growth has been very slow after 3 weeks and barely noticeable in many areas
Not happy…..

Katie Booker
Great product. Great service.

From purchase to delivery to aftercare the service is very easy and personal.
The seeds were sewn onto newly graded soil and have taken very well!
Would certainly use again and recommend.
