EverGreen Fast Grass Lawn Seed with revolutionary ‘Headstart Gold’ grass seed coating
Create a new lawn or fill in a bare patch
Apply to your lawn between March to early October. Remove all weeds and stones. Turn the soil over to a depth of 15-22cm. Level and firm by either treading or using a roller.
To create a new lawn or fill in a bare patch you will need 30g per square metre. Create a criss-cross pattern by sowing half the seed from left to right and the rest from top to bottom. Gently rake in, then tread or roll seed into the soil. Unless it rains, soak with a fine spray and keep soil moist for the next few weeks.
The grass can be trimmed when 5cm - 8cm. Each time you mow, lower blade height a level until it’s at 2.5cm. Do not cut more than ⅓ off the growth at any one time.
Over-seed an existing lawn
Apply to your lawn between March to early October. Prepare the lawn by mowing it short, raking out dead grass, moss and debris. Apply a lawn dressing such as EverGreen Lawn Soil. In dry conditions, moisten the lawn.
Sprinkle a small handful of seed for each square metre (20g). Lightly rake the seed into the lawn. Unless it rains, soak with a fine spray and keep soil moist for the next few weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Do I need to add any fertiliser to the grass seed?
A1: Quite often there is enough residual fertility in the soil to help the young grass plants grow. Do not use strong fertilisers weed and moss killers for 24 weeks after sowing seed as young grass plants are tender and might be harmed.
Q2: Can I use my Scotts EvenGreen Drop Spreader to sow the seed?
A2: Yes, use setting 18 and go over the lawn 3 times at different angles. For settings with our other spreaders and grass seeds go to https://www.lovethegarden.com/advice/lawn-care/tools/lawn-spreader-settings.
Q3: When can I expect to see the shoots coming up?
A3: In ideal conditions germination starts in 4 days with a small root and shoot (grass blade). If the soil is cooler germination might take longer, maybe up to 28 days.
Q4: Why is it called Fast Grass?
A4: Due to the special seed blend, germination is quick and can be expected in just 4 days under ideal conditions. The special Coating holds nutrients that stimulate the seed to develop and grow.
Q5: When is the best time to sow grass seed?
A5: Grass seeds need a high enough soil temperature in order to germinate, so wait until all frosts have passed and we are starting to see much warmer night temperatures. Usually between March and September. Avoid sowing grass in very hot and dry conditions; equally avoid cold conditions to get the best results.
Q6: What is the coverage?
A6: The coverage per each pack size is as follows:
- 450 g carton = 15 m²
- 2.4 kg carton = 80 m²
- 6 kg bag = 200 m²

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Read some reviews later and was concerned at the negative reports.
Checked my box and it says March 2017. No shoots from any of the seeds. No email address to complain to, really poor show
I read the reviews of others and thought "it's only grass seed, what can go wrong?" Clicking on One Click Purchase button in the app - that's what went wrong. Do not buy. Your wasting your money.
I tried sprinkling it over the soil with no cover and it did not germinate, cover it and keep it damp and hey presto as expected it grows well.
Update. This grass grows very well and now after 3 weeks its hardy and extremely tolerant to even the drought staying lush and green, however I have left it longer than normal at 4cm because of the drought. One more thing, its very important to cover it with a light compost or soil and keep it damp each night and it grows really well.
