Planting Date: You can begin planting after the daytime temperature remains in the low 90’s. Usually planting starts after mid-September and extends through January 1st. Planting can resume again February 1st and continue into mid-February. Soil preparation: If over seeding Giant or Pasture Bermuda grass, we suggest using a light disc on the Bermuda field before planting to loosen the soil and give the seed a place to take root. Seed should be broadcast at the rate of 80-120 pounds per acre.
