GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Need adequate calcium and phosphorous to perform well. Likes neutral to alkaline loams, but pretty tolerant of heavy, poorly-drained soils. If broadcasting, overseed by a third, and cover seed 2-3 times its width with soil and firm down. Protect from birds if needed, and water to establish, especially with severe frosts. Requires 17" of rainfall per year.
