Rye Grass – Florida


Anonymous added on October 29, 2013 | Answered

I have bare spots in my lawn that I would like to fill in with rye grass. When is the best time to plant it? It is now the end of Sept. but still pretty warm here in Florida.

Also - what is something I can plant in a bed beneath my oak tree in the mostly-shaded area? The impatiens I had there lasted for 3 years but died this year. I don't care if it is flowers or shrubs, just something that will last the winter.

Here is a link on perennial ryegrass: http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/TOOLS/TURF/TURFSPECIES/perrye.html
I recommend to customers using containers under trees. It is difficult for most plants to compete with a tree for nutrients and moisture. Containers can be moved around or changed in short order. Plus, you will have more control of nutrition and water. Using containers will give more flexibility than planting in a bed.
