Buchloe dactyloides (Buffalo Grass) Seeds
Buffalo Grass
I've been experimenting with this BG in the upper part of South Carolina for several years. The grass is beautiful and it tends to stay green all year. Doesn't need mowing, grows in clay soil and spreads. I only invest one ounce at a time. Spreading the seed on aerated soil give that a 3. Keeping the seed watered, my bad, give that a 3. I've tried growing my on plugs, give that a 3. I made pre planting packets from egg holders from paper egg crates, with 5 seed and 1/4 oz. of fertilizer held in by a tissue lid, give that a 3. I have some growing in a patch of Bermuda grass and it is winning the battle pushing the Bermuda aside. It comes up as a single sprout and starts spreading. This year I am going to try clear plastic mini-greenhouses held in place by U-shaped weed-fabrics spikes over the seeds to trap moisture and keep squirrels away. I usually pull crabgrasses including the roots and plant them under my water-oaks where nothing grows. Where the crab-grass was i introduce the BG.
