Wholesale Non-GMO Annual Ryegrass Seeds

If you're looking for a fast-growing, versatile grass, annual ryegrass is a great choice. It's often used as a "nurse grass" to help other grasses such as tall fescue establish more quickly. Non-GMO nurse grass seeds are available for both lawn and agricultural use. Explore 1-lb to 100-lb pound options today.

Annual Ryegrass Growing

When seeding a new lawn, it's best to wait until the soil temperature is cool, around 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This usually occurs in early fall. Annual ryegrass is considered a quick-grow grass and is ideal for both sun and shade. Seeds germinate in approximately seven to 10 days, providing quick cover and green growth even through the winter months.
Once spring arrives, annual ryegrass will go dormant and then die off completely by early summer.

To seed an annual ryegrass lawn, rake the soil to loosen it and remove any debris. Then, using a seed spreader, apply the seed as desired. Gently rake the seeded area to help incorporate the seed into the soil. Water the area deeply and keep it moist until the seed germinates. Once the seedlings are about 2 to 3 inches tall, you can reduce watering to once per day.

While annual ryegrass is fairly low maintenance, it does require some care to ensure a healthy lawn. Fertilize annual ryegrass every four to six weeks using a lawn fertilizer. Water regularly, especially during periods of extended drought. Lastly, aim for a maximum height of 2 to 3 inches when mowing to avoid damage.
