When to sow winter rye grass seeds

Posted by lrogersjr 9 (My Page) on

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!

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