i put mo bacter down mid-march and seeded start april. No movement until this last week....and the main part of the grass is coming on well, but the re-seeded bits are pretty bare. I am going to have to cut it though

As with others, mine is coming along but the cold wet last few weeks really put the brakes on progress. It's had one really high skim cut and I'll work that down over the coming weeks before levelling and topping up seed.

So not a lot of progress but I thought this was interesting - this is a soggy spot that didn't take at all from the initial seeding but I dug it through with some grit and dried chicken manure pellets (6X) and it's actually overtaken the rest of the grass despite being in the ground 6 months less. It's a lovely dark green (which can be an easy tweak I know) but it's so vigorous and thick, I thought worth sharing.



I wouldn't recommend the pellets as a dressing, they swell when wet and stick around for ages but digging in obviously works and I think I'll see how they work as a tea in a watering can.
