Can I grow Sir Walter from seed?
A common question asked is – Can Sir Walter be grown from seed? And the answer is no. Most of your drought tolerant varieties 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.
Your seed grown varieties tend to be cool season grasses like rye, fescue and blue grass. And these in most parts of Australia fail as a home lawn because the country is basically too hot. These grasses are much better suited to the cooler parts of Europe and upper North America.
