Hello All

Have laid grass seed about three weeks ago now and seedlings appearing and doing well so far. Expect over time, they will comtinue to grow, albeit a bit slower than warmer time of year.

I know that when they reach a certain height, a first light cut shuold be given to help grass to thicken. Should i do this given it would be middle of winter, or should i leave it and wait until Spring?

Many thanks

If the weather remains mild I would give it a light cut this will improve tillering and thicken the grass.

the temperature has dropped and is supposed to get colder over the weekend so it might be no harm to wait until the next mild spell
