Brand new to the site. I got a little impatient last week and overseeded my lawn with a liberal amount of perennial ryegrass (Pennington NW mix) and a thin layer of compost top dressing. So after seeding we had a few days in the 60's and even a 75* day before temps dropped back to chilly highs in 50's and 30's lows. I doubt that soil ever had a chance to reach germination temps. We had one quick frost this morning which I believe is our last. My question is what are the affects of seeding a few weeks too early in spring and a potential frost prior to seeds sprouting and/or germination? Also how long will the seeds last if soil temps are slow to rise?
