Sowing a meadow
Hi! I'd appreciate some advice, please.
I ordered a seed mix (80% grass, 20% flowers) from John Chambers for the shady bank behind my house. (They made me up a specific mixture for the conditions I have here.) I've killed off the couch grass which covered the bank, but left the dead growth in place to reduce soil erosion in heavy rain.
The woman at JC suggested it would be ok to sow the seeds now. I'm just wondering if I might have greater success leaving it until next April? I'm imagining seeds sown now will just sit around in the cooling soil, not germinating but providing food for the birds.
Any thoughts, please?
