The Bermuda grass started to show little green shoots around 8th May so the seed took about 3 weeks to germinate. It needs 20+ degrees plus moist ground so this is most difficult stage. A fine green bloom is covering the seeded area but I am not sure how much of this is due to Bermuda or just the normal grass seeded from the soil that was brought in - a curate's egg.
The temperature has now soared to more than 30 degrees and it has not rained for nearly 3 weeks so watering is becoming a crucial task. I am also having to weed the grass, but life is too short to do very much of this.
