Prepare the planting area by mixing generous quantities of organic humus into the soil. Peat moss, processed manure, and compost (if available) are excellent soil additives. Mix them about 50% with your existing soil. You only need to prepare the soil 6 to 10 inches deep. Remove weeds and stones and rake.
Broadcast the seed over the planting area. It may help to mix the fine seed with sand to get more even distribution. Press the seeds lightly into the soil, but do not cover. Water well and continue to water especially through hot periods.
