Johnsons J Premier Green Grass Seed

A unique 60% bent mixture with a fescue nurse crop content to allow for successful overseeding and to enable the Browntop Bent species time to establish. Once established this mix has excellent shoot density which helps to reduce incidences of Poa annua invasion. The high proportion of Browntop Bent in the mix ensure that the sward is extremely tolerant to close mowing and helps to produce a fast playing surface.
