Winter Seeding

Asked September 19, 2016, 9:30 PM EDT

At a local nursery I was told that after the first frost I could spread my grass seed and let it winter over. Any truth to this?

They were correct. Seeding should take place once ground is cold enough to prevent sprouting but before the ground freezes. Here is a step-by-step publication on dormant seeding: http://www3.extension.umn.edu/county/stearns/county-horticulture-educator/article/dormant-seeding-yo...
