For over a month now I’ve been receiving questions that go something like this, “I know I missed the best time for seeding my lawn which is mid-August to mid-September. Can I still seed even though it’s October and temperatures have been mild?” My response is always the same, “Just wait, dormant seeding in November will be your best option.” It is very true that if temperatures are warm during the month of October, you could get some seed to establish prior to winter, but temperatures are unpredictable and could change drastically within a day.
