This spring we moved into our newly built dream home. Unfortunately that also meant a freshly graded yard without grass. Our builder did seed and straw this winter before we moved in and I got positive results in the back yard. However the front yard remained bare. I purchased 4 large bags of this seed along with scots turf builder starter fertilizer. Weather has been perfect, 50-75 degrees. I also have a full yard irrigation system that has been run daily. In the past month I've seeded twice, yes on the recommended spreader setting, with disappointing results. In my opinion this seed does no better than the cheapest contractors mix you can find. I will give seeding another go in the fall but not with this product. Expected superior results with scotts, in ideal conditions, but that has not been the case.

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE Scotts 3 Lb All Purpose Flower & Vegetable Food:

        I have struggled for many years trying to grow fescue grass here (hate Bermuda). All of the previous brands/types I've tried have died during the high heat and droughts. The Scott's Southern Gold is the ticket. I now have a green thick lawn that last all year long (except for snow coverings). It is even doing better than the Zoysia I have in one area as far as drought tolerance and water needs and is much more attractive too. I tried this grass seed after my neighbor had it for a full year and his stayed green all year long and is still green and thick. I do have to keep on top of the fungus issues it has by using the Scott's fungus control once at the end of spring and another application 3 weeks later and that's all the trouble I have had which was really minor and I didn't lose but only two small patches of grass before the fungus control was applied (learning curve here). I water early morning and only one inch a week (if no rain came) and that's it. I have hard clay soil that I do plug once a year at the beginning of summer that helps the water go down deeper. This grass is a deep green near blue turf and is very thick so weeds are hard to find. I keep the grass mowed 3-4 inches tall in the summer and I am working on improving my soil and believe I will have less problems with fungus next year. Thanks Scotts for the seed I have long been looking for!!!

        Be Mindful of the Nitrogen Content

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE Scotts 3 Lb All Purpose Flower & Vegetable Food:

          I seeded my entire lawn with this with good results. Areas that died out I put down heavy handfuls in bare spots as I have always done and it all sprouted and then instantly turned a crispy bright brown. I thought I had over fertilized and in the end, I did. It was the seed that caused the over fertilization in those specific spots. The seeds have nitrogen coated on them and I did not realize this. Do not heavily seed like with an ordinary grass seed and you will have great results.

                          I didn't get to plant grass last year due to severe drought conditions here in South Georgia. This year Mother Nature was more kind with her rainfall and my ground was not rock hard. First I dug down two to three inches in my selected area. I then added some fertilizer (I have pecan trees that sap my soil of nutrients). Next I wet everything lightly and mixed it together lightly. Then I added my grass seed by hand. Next I covered the seed with a good bagged soil. I then watered the area and continued to water twice a day for 10 days until I saw my first sprouts. It is now a nice green area where before it was barren. I have continued to water once a day and everything is growing well. Thanks Scott's!

                                  Works well with or without irrigation. Blends in great with other brands you may have planted in the past. Roots tend to develop quickly, so it should withstand a a tough summer.

                                              Great for Fall or early Spring planting. Fast growing in warmer temperatures. Fescue Lawns typically die temperatures 90 or greater. I am in the Texas where cool season grasses struggle in the summer. So do not make this your primary summer lawn in the South. These seeds makes a beautiful deep green lawn you can enjoy all winter long in all parts of the country. Both North and South.

                                                          Used this in the fall for overseeding and it has performed very well. Germination is good and the grass grew very fast. We entered a drought shortly afterward and it is handling it very well, even though it is still young. This is a great grass seed and I highly recommend it for us Southerners.

                                                              Seeded late summer so didn't get a full season's growth, but early results are impressive. Looking forward to next spring/summer to see how it does with a full year's cycle.

                                                                  Hey it worked! Used roundup a few times to kill the weeds and grass, raked up all the dead stuff by hand before spreading the grass seed, covered it all with straw, and watered it 2- 3 times a day. There are lots of weeds coming up, but you can expect that when using straw for a covering. Also, I planted in fall so I expected the cooler season weeds to start sprouting once I added all that water. I'm just going to hit the yard with a broadleaf weed killer after the 4th cut and that will take care of that. I'm giving it 4 stars only because I can't vouch for its performance in the summer yet. It handled upper 80s pretty good thus far, just have to keep it watered. Be sure to plant in the fall in southern middle Tennessee. The grass won't survive the heat if you do it in spring.

The germination guide was 6-14 days - the new seedlings appeared on the 9th day. I will keep them watered until they reach the appropriate height for mowing. I have used Scott's seed in the past with good success - I expect no less from this product.

So I got this Southern Gold and to start with it came up in 6 days and with some water but not as much as usual, No weeds and honestly I believe that every place that I over seeded has new grass coming up,To my surprise this came up for me with with normal process. I have went back and purchased more and have done my whole back and front. I really think this is a Miracle grow in past I have just waited money on other products

It is living up to claim of harsh conditions. Grows where other brands will not. Birds do not go after the seeds. Just rake the ground to break up some and spread seed with seeder or broad cast with hands. Easy to follow the instructions.

Maybe I did something wrong, but I used all of it, as well as buying a couple of bales of wheat straw to keep the birds from eating them. If you would send me another bag, I'll spread this again, to see if I got a bad batch, or did something wrong. What I can say, is on the spots the grass is growing, it looks great. I'd love to really make this look good. I did this at my moms house.

We have tried several different types and brands of seed. We decided to give Scotts Southern Gold a chance. We aerated the lawn, then cast the seed and fertilizer with a Scotts broadcast spreader. Within 2 weeks we have grass and within 4 weeks the yard is starting to look good. We hope in 2 more weeks with continued warm temperatures we will have a great yard.

                                                                                                          The Piedmont region of Matthews, NC had the hottest summer ever and our yard suffered from the heat and lack of rain. Watering restrictions were in place for most of the summer. Our yard was dry and bare in many places although we watered on our assigned days. After reading that the Southern Gold Mix grass seed absorbed 2x more water we decided to give it a try. Prep for the yard was easy; just raking and loosening the top soil. We applied the seeds to the front yard with a spreader, then watered as much as possible. After about 7 days we saw the seeds begin to grow; 2 weeks in we had grass in all the bare spots, and after 30 days we have a lush green lawn. Pictures are attached. This product really works well!
