‘The 1’: Fastest ever lawn seed blend

New for 2015 - The 1New for sowing this spring, ‘The 1’ is the quickest establishing grass seed that has ever been developed, say renowned lawn care specialists Johnsons Lawn Seed. 

Developed in the company’s dedicated research laboratories, the new mix features two new varieties of lawn perennial ryegrass which are the quickest available to germinate and establish.  The new varieties have a larger seed containing more energy allowing quicker germination and the development of deeper roots.

Once established, ‘The 1’ grows at a normal rate and needs no more mowing than usual.  And if that wasn’t enough, it also delivers greater drought resistance than traditional lawn ryegrass with excellent wear tolerance and appearance – essential for well-used family lawns, and for withstanding dry spells in the summer.

  Johnsons Lawn Seed expert Guy Jenkins explains the benefits for consumers: “The seeds themselves are larger than other lawn grasses, allowing them to hold more energy and nutrients – meaning quicker and more successful germination rates even at lower temperatures. The time between sowing and mowing has never been shorter ensuring beautiful lawns are easier to obtain than ever before.”

‘The 1’ is a new addition to the current range of premium lawn seed mixtures from Johnsons which include ‘Any Time’, ‘Quick Fix and ‘Tuffgrass’.

New for 2015 - After Moss

After Moss Lawn Seed: Perfect for replacing moss in lawns

Ready for spring lawn maintenance, the UK’s leading lawn seed brand, Johnsons Lawn Seed, have perfected a lawn grass with a moss deterrent coating

Utilising an innovative anti-moss seed coating made from calcium carbonate, After Moss can be sown on problem lawns where moss has been removed and is ready to re-sow.  The calcium carbonate gently raises the pH level of the soil, creating an inhospitable environment for moss, which allows new grass to grow unhindered.

  After Moss Lawn Seed, available in 1kg cartons (SRP £9.99) is unlike anything else on the market today, and is exclusive to Johnsons Lawn Seed.

Spokesman Guy Jenkins said: “Spring is a great time to attend to invasive moss which has the ability to significantly impact the performance and overall look of a lawn.  Until now products were only designed to remove moss from lawns, such as scarifiers or chemical based products, without addressing the long-term development of the lawn after the moss has been eradicated.  After Moss is unique, it combines a 100% amenity dwarf perennial ryegrass mix with a specially formulated anti-moss coating, to deter moss whilst also establishing new grass growth.”

The packaging contains clear and concise information, including usage, establishment rate, and suitability for different types of lawn, as well as the usual easy to follow advice on how to sow a new lawn.
