How to Grow
Sow seed late April through late May. A site in full sun is recommended. Vigorously rake the area to be planted to remove debris and accumulated thatch and to break up the soil. Add top soil to fill in any low spots then rake level. Sow seed at a rate of 1 kg/90 sq. m. (2.2 lbs/1000 sq. ft.) Apply twice at half rate over the area in a crisscross pattern. After application is complete, rake the seeded area lightly to just cover the seed with a fine layer of soil. Water with a fine spray for two or three weeks to keep the seed moist during the germination period. After that water once a week for the first summer should drought set in. When starting in recently cleared areas, competition from weeds will be a factor. Use trimming or mowing to gain control over weedy species.
