Subsequently, question is, does fescue germinate in summer? As a cool-season grass, established tall fescue grows best during the cooler soil and air temperatures that happen in late summer to early fall and again in early spring. Tall fescue seed needs soil temperatures near 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit for thorough germination and strong root development.
Similarly, it is asked, how often should I water new grass seed?
Ordinary Seed: Water 1-2 times a week, applying a total of approximately 1 inch of water each week based on your location and time of year. Watering 1- 2 times per week is more beneficial than light watering several times a week. Light watering promotes shallow roots, which make plants less drought tolerant.
