Of course the goal is to keep the soil wet for as long after I put down the
hose as possible. When the soil is in the sun, the water seeps into the
ground, plus evaporates, so its not long before the soil is just moist. But
what about where there is either full shade, or periods of full or even
partial shade. These areas just remain sopping set, it is a great place for
whatever happens in wet. Is it possible to drown seeds? A second of hose
and you can tell the glass is almost full already, ie deep watered and
runneth over. Is it possible that during the first few weeks (give or take)
that in these shady areas that I can actually water too much for
germination? I am just wondering if its possible to actaually hinder the
seeds by watering excessively. Its not like a seed floating in a glass of
dirty water - majority dirt, but still, the Question remains.
some is obviously tiny grass now, but very much still not.
additional Question from this original:
put some Scotts Kentucky Bluegrass common #1 grass seed down 8-10 days ago.
[now nearly 2 weeks]
I think the conditions are perfect, according to the bag 15-26Celcius. It
was overcast and raining for maybe 4 of those days, and the days it wasn't
and even those it was, I have watered it several times per day. Is this
neccesary, and how long should it take to come up? I have been able to keep
it moist (it has not dried out yet), but the bag says only "water daily".
