Good preparation is very important to success so aim to keep watch over weeds and produce a good quality seed bed before sowing. To prepare a seed bed first remove weeds the usage of repeated cultivation or a herbicide. Then plough or dig to bury the surface vegetation, harrow or rake to produce a medium tilth, and roll, or tread, to produce a firm surface. Sowing Seed is best sown in the autumn or spring but may also be sown at other times of the year if there is sufficient warmth and moisture. The seed will have to be surface sown and may also be applied by machine or broadcast by hand. To get an even distribution and avoid running out divide the seed into two or more parts and sow in overlapping sections. Do not incorporate or cover the seed but firm in with a roll, or by treading, to give good soil/seed contact.
