When to sow winter rye grass seeds

lrogersjrSeptember 30, 2008

Can anyone advise when the right time is to sow winter rye grass seeds? Years ago when I use to try it I always managed to wait until the first cold snap however by the time it germinated and started looking good I always thought it was getting pretty late in the season. Although I don't want to sow it too early and have bad results too. Unfortunately there is no helpful information on the bag of seed. Thanks!

Rye Grass, Small Grains, & Tall Fescue

Here in the Gainesville area I'd plant about the middle of October if the five day forecast looked good.
