Alan Titchmarsh shares the ‘best’ lawn seed for hard wearing grass – ‘Perfect’ time to sow

“They come along and dig a little home then leave you a little present.

“The way to stop that is quite simple, get dome twiggy pea sticks and lay them across the surface – it sort of gets in the cat’s way and they tend to leave them alone.”

It is perfectly fine to just scatter the lawn seed on the soil, but for those worried that a lot of the seed is going to blow away or that they’ve got a particular bird problem a very very light raking over is ok to do.

Alan noted: “A lot of seeds like grass need a bit of light to germinate, but bury them too deeply, the fine seeds won’t come up so there really is no point in covering them over much.”

In terms of watering, Alan explained that it is not necessary to water the ground.

He said: “Absolutely no need to water, not in this country, you’ll find that a shower of rain will very soon be forthcoming.”
