Is late September too late for sowing lawn seed in SW Scotland.



Yes, now is a good time for various reasons. If it is for a small area then sow the grass seed in an old baking tray filled with soil and keep moist - after a few weeks you can patch any part of your lawn.

Grass seed is best sown from late summer to mid-autumn; there is less competition from weeds, and the soil is warm, and damp from rain. Perfect for seeds to germinate.
