I would lijke to know if Munns will give me compensation for all the hard work and expense I have incurred for nil result. I prepared the ground by rotary hoeing and top dressing then followed Munns instructions for sowing and maintaining soil moisture over the past two weeks. Not a blade of mother crop let alone Kikuyu in sight

I'm having the exact result...$86 for "premium" grass seed and I have had better results with cheap home brand grass seed! Mine has been in for 2 weeks and still not a germinated seed in sight despite religiously watering!

And no response from Munns I assume

Of course not! I went and bought Brunnings seed and over-sowed as I have used that before and it delivers what it promises! Still can't get over the Munn's lawn seed claiming it germinates in 5-7 days...what a crock of lies!

Can you tell me the correct product for weed control in Emerald Kikuyu? We have bindi, burrs and an assortment of other weed. Have tried weed and feed, not really successful, we would like to kill the weeds and then feed the lawn, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Chris,
We use weed 'n' feed it works well on our grass, we make sure we use it when there is no rain in the weather forecast or it washes it away. If you have a lot of weeds doesn't hurt to apply then re apply again after a full week should assist with ensuring none were missed in the first application.
Hope this helps

Buy the Brunnings 100% seed instead. 4 small tubs would cover that area. I don't think they sell larger tubs, but you can ask. Here is the URL link:

As the tub is transparent, you can clearly see the Brunnings product has 100% seed content. This is what infuriated me about the misleading Munns product.

Hi John,
Emerald has a filler seed , which is the rye grass, that comes up fairly quickly, then you will see the small spreading kikuya starting to appear, which sounds like thats what your seeing, eventually the rye dies out, its just a temporary filler. I would be mowing now if its 100mm high. Hopefully yours doesnt have a fertile seed head later when its matured. That is my issue, every year around spring, the lawn is covered in white seed heads that blow all through my garden and sprout kikuya everywhere, and yes its a running grass, if i could go back and change , i would use santa ana couch grass, still a running variety, but a better choice in my opinion.
Cheers Gaynor

Hi Karen
I'm not sure if you are aware; but that is exactly how the Emerald Kikuyu is supposed to grow out. First off it is a fast-growing cool weather grass - designed to give you a lawn quickly and then the Kikuyu grows within that. Once the warmer temperatures (that Kikuyu loves) kick in - it races away - out-competing the other grass altogether. If you take a close look at what you have you should see the beginnings of the Kikuyu runners? Kikuyu LOVES the heat - and just a bit of water.

Cheers

Hey Steve, I understand this but the two sections of the lawn is totally different! Could I send you some photo's?
