We are experiencing problems with take all patch on a few greens at the moment.

We are using a 100% fescue mix to over seed these areas. This year we are trying a different method of seeding.

  • spike the area with a fork to create as many holes as possible seed to drop into.
  • use an edging iron to create slits at 1 cm gaps in 2 directions dropping the seed into the slits.
  • sprinkling over a light sand top dressing on the area before brushing it in.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks we should have some photos of germination to fill in the gaps left by the take all.
