VICTORIA

It’s often a slower start to the warmer season in Victoria.  Buy your bulk lawn seed and wait until there’s more warmth in the soil following winter.  In Victoria you can choose Warm or Cool season grasses.  If you choose a cool season mix ensure you plant it with enough time for it to establish before the hot summer weather arrives, otherwise the young plant will struggle.  If you want to sow a warm season grass, wait until the summer weather has arrived to sow so that they are germinating at the optimum time.  Warm season grasses need very warm soil to take off.
