• The cheap seed challenge!

I have to admit, before working with the Grassright Group I’ve tended to view all grass seed mixtures as being the same. I just buy cheap seed. Why pay more?

Well I’ve upset the Limagrain chaps! Apparently there IS a difference! They say buying cheap seed mixtures is often a false economy.

So we are having a challenge: every year I undersow my spring barley with a grass and red clover mixture. This time I’m sowing half the field with my usual mixture which I get for a very good price, and the other half with a Sinclair McGill mixture called Colossal Red which is a bit more expensive. We are all keen to see the results…
