Can I grow Sir Walter from Seed?

Sir Walter cannot be grown from seed:

  • Most drought tolerant varieties of turf cannot be grown from seed.
  • Sir Walter, does produce a seed but it is male, sterile and not economically viable to be grown from.
  • Even at the turf farms, Sir Walter is grown from a cutting.

Seed grown varieties:

  • Tend to be cool season grasses like rye, fescue and blue grass.
  • Fail as a home lawn in most parts of Australia, due to the climate being too hot.
  • These grasses are much better suited to the cooler parts of Europe and upper North America.
