Mix the seed with some sand or sawdust, broadcast the seed, and then go over the area with a rake to work the seed into the soil a little. This product is best seeded at 6-12 lbs per acre or 5 ounces for 1000 square feet. SUBSTITUTIONS: Due to supply chain issues and high demand, some seed varieties may not be available.
