Read about Black Beauty grass seed in an article in the NYTimes where it was recommended. Used it both to overseed areas and to seed a bare area. Both areas have done well filling in with lush green grass. So far seems to be better than the seed blends I have tried in the past.
Just seeded about 24 hours ago and the existing grass has benefited by turning a beautiful emerald green. Soil looks richer and healthier too. I am hoping for great results. Though too soon to tell. The seed seemed a little old and dry however.
I was concerned that the product would be "stale", but I found that its germination was tested nine months ago ... giving me confidence that my efforts wouldn't be wasted. As seeds go, the germination and noxious weed content was above average. While it "came up" in 10 days as advertised, haven't yet had a good look at the grass. But from what I've seen, I think I'm going to like it. Next three weeks will tell.
This was a simple way for someone like me (who has very little talent in starting plants from seeds!) to follow simple instructions and grow my own herbs from seeds. Love this and will likely purchase a few more for transplantation to outdoors.
