Seeding Your Lawn in November

If you missed your earlier window for lawn seeding (mid-August to mid-September) it's not too late.  November offers an optimal time to dormant seed your lawn.  

What is dormant seeding? Dormant seeding is a practice of laying down seed during the dormant period, typically November through April.  The seed is pulled into the soil by the freeze/thaw cycles and is ready to germinate in the spring.  

Is dormant seeding right for me?  Sam Bauer, Turf Extension Educator offers more information in his article There's Still Time to Dormant Seed Your Lawn.  Learn more about the practice by following the link.
