It likely grows in poor soil as advertised, however, I had to really prep my soil to get seeds to grow. It take still alot more work than I had in mind. Still where I worked hard on ground prep., it is a nice green. only time will tell if it returns thick next year after this draught ends.
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 scared about starting any kind of plant from a seed, because I'm not exactly known for having a green thumb! Having this mix of sprouting veggies and herbs though made it incredibly easy to create my own organic garden in my backyard with confidence! I'm not moving on to multiple other plants and veggies/fruits, and I know it wouldnt have been possible had I not opted for this very affordable mixture!
