Haven’t seeded it yet. But plan to mix it with other stuff. Horse greens are hard to find here. Will make small patches I can cut for them. Thanks a lot for having a smaller amount! Chickens may Like it as well.

Great so far

I planted this product a little while back. It is now sprouting and seems to have a good germination rate. It is just popping up so I can not say more at this point. I am happy so far.

Fast delivery but failed to get stand

Had perfect conditions for planting and ground was worked and packed. Seed we’re lightly covered. Remote location but 10 days of dry weather and maybe one of every 100 seeds made it. Was a test plot but given results glad I only planted a small plot. Can’t blame seed but didn’t work for me

Oh no! Dry weather probably didn't help, seed needs to be kept moist daily. Hopefully when the rain picks up maybe you will get more to germinate. Keep us posted. Thank you for your review!

Off to a good start

Planted Bulldog 505 in September on approximately 1.5 acres in Davie County NC. Planted in prepared ground and in sod on a slope with drill. After receiving some timely rain experienced very good germination. Seeing good growth after one month. Hope to see a well established stand after Spring growth.
