This cool-season grass flourishes in cooler conditions, but if managed correctly can do well in warm conditions. Getting the water and food management correct is vital to the success of this grass.
The sewing rate is 40g/m2 (4kg/100m2). The areas must be loosened up and a compost mix added into the soil. The area must then be prepared by raking level the soil in one direction. Add the seed by hand or using a drop seeder. Rake the seed in the opposite direction to the original direction when the soil was prepared. Fertilizer can be added to boost the initial growth period and add water straight after seeding. The ideal time to seed would is in autumn and spring, and best to seed early in the season.
This is a quick germinating, non-spreading bunch grass. It is not like our more familiar warm-season grass, Kikuyu that spreads. This grass only growth vertically. When seeding it is best to seed slightly more than the recommended rate. This grass does not like to be cut too short, especially in summer.
