MM11 Grass Seed

HEADSTART GOLD - Limagrain

A traditional 80:20 Fescue and Bent mixture for the overseeding, renovation and construction of superior quality grass swards. The cultivars used in this mix have low nutrient and irrigation requirements but still produce a fine, dense sward which creates a superior playing surface. The seed mix is tolerant of close mowing and has excellent disease resistance. Good tolerance to wear makes this seed suitable for use in high traffic areas.
