I am familiar with this grass & knew it grows well here in Townsville but couldn't source the seed locally so had to search the internet. I found McKays, placed my order, received a bonus with free postage & the seed arrived sooner than expected considering the distance. Great service from McKays!! I started sowing the beginning of March & most seeds germinated around the 5th day. Now bare dirt has been transformed to a wonderful green cover. Love this grass!

I started a new cut blank slate of land in mid November 2014, unfortunately the top soil and first spread of blue seeds washed out.
Germination time in Brisbane Queensland over the summer weeks without rain was up to three weeks when the rainy periods in early 2015 started germination was two weeks, keep these seeds moist.
Now in mid March 2015 the blue cooch has achieved a good spread and coverage is better to achieve now the heavy rain has gone.
