    NEW LAWN LOOKS AWESOME This ryegrass seed blend was fantastic without any huge prep basically a thin layer of topsoil then seed this stuff just took off and i think germination rate would have been in the high 90% fantastic product

    FINE LOOING BLADES - STUNNING GREEN The texture is fine and delicate and soft. Stunning green colour all through summer and quick to grow. Only took 5 weeks from seed to full bed of grass.

    AN AMAZING TRANSFORMATION! We seeded our vast pond perimeter and more - the Ducks and ducklings had a field day - we were delighted - lucky too with the weather lots of drizzle and gentle rain. We are so extremely happy with the results of McKay's Ryegrass Blend- so velvety so beautiful, so green.
