JS16 Supershade Grass Seed

JS16 Supershade Grass Seed

JS16 Supershade- One of our most popular grass seed mixes. JS16 is formulated for adaptation to areas of very low light intensity and the associated stress problems of dry, compacted soils and lower nutrient availability. Unlike the JS1 Shady this mix has added POA SUPINA this increases the shade and wear tolerance meaning this mix can withstand extremely shaded areas for prolonged periods. Suitable for areas in constant shade such as building shadows and tree margins. Even though this mix is formulated to withstand shaded areas it is equally as happy in full sunlight.

    Good quality seed and germinated well. I planted it in some sunny areas and some shaded areas in Sep 2020 and it has taken well. A bit early to see the full results, as it hasn’t really had a full season yet but it looks promising.

    We are a professional garden services company and we recently discovered this supplier of seeds and turf and decided to give hem a go. Their customer service is excellent and their products are nothing but up to the game. we’ve been using them for a year or so now and can’t complain about one thing!
    regarding this specific product we use it regularly where we struggle with light and it’s the best supina-based mix we used so far. Despite their honesty in not advising it in overly moist condition highlighting eventual higher susceptibility of supina to fungal disease this is also the most resistant strain we ever used by a long shot. Highly recommended if you dont have light enough for a ‘normal’ lawn
