    If the soil is warm enough- but it will be slow to germinate- grass seed is not that expensive why not just give it a try?

    Yes, go for it! Not exactly the same but I've just sown my wildflower meadow but now is fine for grass seed too.

    I rakekd over and re-seeded some bare patches (builders' skips image) last Sunday and it rained on Monday - perfect timing.  We're still getting some spells of warmish sunshine so I'm hopefull that I'll have a green lawn before very long.  A packet of grass seed cost me £7.99 if I remember correctly - I used about one tenth of it - the chap at the garden centre worked out how much of the special Patching stuff (a mix of coir and seed etc) I would need and he costed it to over £50!  I'm happy to give the cheap and simple solution a go image

    Leslie, can you start a new thread for your question?  Then the tomato experts will see it image
