Did you know that I went to Portland in March to spend the day with some awesome bloggers and some very dedicated employees of Pennington Seed? You can see the post Pennington Seed Summit if you want to read about my trip.
One of the things we did in our day long summit was to plant some seed. The following pictures show some Pennington Smart Seed that I planted.
I took this photo of my two “plots”. The one on the left got Pennington Smart Seed, the one on the right got One Step Complete. This series of pictures is of the Smart Seed. (Pennington took pictures of my plots and sent them to me.)
This series is of the One Step Complete:
It’s also worth noting that specialized variety mixes of Pennington 1-Step Complete™ are available. Since the mixes are customized to specific climates, Pennington has taken the guesswork out of mix selection. Varieties include: Tall Fescue, Sun & Shade and Dense Shade.
I am so pleased with the way my Pennington Seed has filled in this area of my lawn. I’ve been here for over 36 years and I’ve never seen this much grass growing in this area of the yard. Because it never has grass, it is terrible to mow because it is so dusty. I’m loving the new look of my lawn and it’s getting better every day! Look for more updates. I threw some seed on the other side of the sidewalk-I was going to wait so I could use the little picket fence, but I got impatient! So as I was saying, I did throw some seed out, we got a big ole rain so I was afraid that it all washed away, but it didn’t. It germinated 3 days later! (Smart Seed) It’s doing really well.
I plan to do some more sowing in the fall. If you are planning to buy some seed, I highly recommend Pennington Seed.
Thank you Pennington Seed for teaching me so much about growing grass and for supplying me with some great grass seed! (by the way, those people must be soooo patient. growing grass is worse than watching paint dry!)
Do YOU need some grass seed? How about $100 gift card to get you going on a summer project? Pennington Seed is giving one reader an American express gift card.
