Known for its hardiness and aggressive runners- Kikuyu is a popular choice for home-owners, sporting fields and larger areas like airports.  The best time for sowing is late spring, to late summer, as long as your temperature is within the optimum temperatures of 18-29°C, you can expect germination. Unlike most Kikuyu, our seed will not go yellow after one frost in the winter. It will eventually go yellow after multiple frosts, however it has been shown to be resistant to colder weather in the winter.

    PENSIONER MISSING IN NEW LAWN I HAD AN ESTIMATED 98% STRIKE OF THE PURE KIKUYU GRASS SEED, SOME OF IT IN POOR QUALITY SOIL. THE WEATHER(LIGHT PERSISTENT RAIN, WARM DAYS) AND FERTILISER ALSO CERTAINLY HELPED. A LUSH GREEN CARPET WHICH I HAVE ALREADY CUT HIGH THREE TIMES. VERY PLEASED AND YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, SO GET THE PURE SEED EVEN THOUGH IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE..
