Meadow & Laminitics Grass Mix

Availability: In stock

Make the most of your grazing.........

  • Creates a non-ryegrass sward, thus reducing grass sugar levels to grazing animals
  • By its nature and component makeup it will help grazing horses and ponies to reduce the incidence of laminitis
  • An ideal choice as a rye replacement where laminitis has previously been an issue
  • All grass species included in SG Meadow and Laminitics mixture cure quickly because of the lower soluble carbohydrate and sugar content within the forage it produces
  • Especially suited to heavier, wetter or more difficult soil types, where ryegrass is not wanted as part of the mixture
  • Produces a coarser grass sward. It is durable and also flexible to occasionally make good quality hay or haylage
  • Extremely persistent and winter hardy, therefore ideal for longer duration usage
  • Can be spread by hand
  • Available in 10kg bags

The ideal sowing window is the period from March to mid-September ideally when the soil is moist or when rain is forecast and the weather is frost free. If possible keep the horses off for 2-3 weeks and once the grass is showing apply SUREGROW FERTILISER

Available with the option of mixed herbs added.
*Herbs mix is Chicory/Burnet/Yarrow/Sheeps Parsley

Re-seeding
Sow shallow (max depth of 1cm) and ensure a clean and weed free seed bed that is both fine and firm in structure. For best results, drill at least 10 to 12 kilos/acre, and ensure your pH levels, P & K are adequate, prior to sowing.

Application for small areas
Loosen soil on bare patches by raking with a grass rake or grass harrows. Scatter grass seed on at a rate of 12kgs per acre if using a spreader or at a rate of 3 grammes per square metre by hand. Cover seed by lightly raking or harrowing and then firm by rolling or walking on.

Spreaders

We would recommend a tow ball drawn spreader or a 3 point linkage type (although the 3 point linkage type spreaders can only be used with a tractor). The tow ball types can fit onto any vehicle with a tow bar (Gator types, sit on lawn mower, quad bikes, car etc.). The hand push types are hard work and can give an uneven spread pattern on rutted ground.

If you're interested in purchasing a spreader to apply your Suregrow Fertiliser Grass Seed we recommend the following brands.

Yarrow- helps to restore arable land back to grassland. One reason for its inclusion in grass mixtures is its deep roots which leave minerals. These can help prevent mineral deficiencies in the animal's which eat it.
