I Thought I Was Buying Grass SEED
If you look at a bag of grass seed, it has information about the contents. Most people don't look at it, and that's too bad. That information tells you what types and varieties of grass seed are in the package, what percentage will sprout, the percent weed seeds, and the percent inert matter like fillers. Empty seed hulls, stems, and fillers can make up a significant amount of the material in a bag of bargain grass seed. How does it get there? Well, cheap grass seed is often not properly cleaned after harvesting it, leaving you with the dirt and other stuff that fill up the bag. High quality grass seed means high quality cleaning to remove empty seed hulls, stems, dirt and other material found in the field.
