Queensland Blue Couch is a very popular choice for home-owners in the warmer parts of Australia. Our Blue couch seed is one of the more  quicker-geminating couch grasses, taking 10-14 days to germinate. Most lawns take 6-8 weeks to fully establish, and by that time you will have a beautiful, soft lush lawn with a slight blue tinge.

In this blend, the Annual ryegrass provides a safety bed- which protects and nurtures the growth of Queensland Blue. The annual ryegrass will eventually die off after 12 months (usually due to warmer weather) allowing the Queensland Blue’s aggressive runners to take over and fill out the other areas.

For best results, plant in a climate that ranges between 18-25 degrees Celsius, and fertilize at least a couple times a year with McKay’s Slow Release Fertiliser. If your are living in parts of Australia where the temperate regularly exceeds 25 degrees, We recommend going with the Pure Queensland Blue as the Annual Rye will not survive long in temperatures over 30 Degrees. 

Germination Expectations: 10-14 days

    After many failed attempts to grow seed from a major retail outlet, I had almost given up on grass. I found this though and it was perfect for Brisbane - no issues with thorough germination, continued growth and now i have grass instead of dirt.

  3. couch doing well

    the Couch is doing well but there is no sign of the Ryegrass

  4. Great grass. The perfect colour green.

    Awesome seed stock. I sowed as directed and found new grass shoots popping up everywhere. I did both, new grass sow (on bare soil) and an over sow on existing thin grass, and now have a nice carpet happening across the back yard. Thank you.
