Buffalo Grass Native Seed Low Maintenance Lawn Turf Grasses No Mow

Buffalo grass – Bouteloua dactyloides is often the choice of gardeners looking for drought-tolerant low water usage lawn-type grasses. Winter hardiness is an important feature of this a low vertical growth habit, to ensure an even green lawn appearance.

Buffalo grasses are often selected to help reduce labor, irrigation, mowing, and fertilization costs. Buffalo grass meets all requirements for low maintenance lawn grasses.

Buffalo grass is known for its superior turf quality. Medium green color, a fine leaf, good thick turf, and stays low, spreading by rhizomes quickly.

No need to mow Buffalo grass weekly; once or twice a year to remove dead and some thatch, but if you are looking for a dense lawn then the more you mow the quicker it will spread and establish.

I use 9cm square pots and trays filled with moist seed starting mix or plug trays.

Sow the ornamental grass seeds on the moist soil and lightly cover, with vermiculite or sieved compost.

Transplant seeds into larger pots when they are large enough to handle.

Plant out after frost, may require a hardening off period where you gradually acclimatize the plants to outdoor conditions.

We hand clean freshly collected seeds

Sow seeds that have been kept refrigerated for 4 or more weeks to help break seed dormancy, then easy to grow, sow seeds direct where you would like them to flower, in Fall or Early Spring

SOWING TIPS: Average of 50+ seeds per pack multiple quantities available.

Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.

1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights
