Great point. I am talking on the scale of acres, hence why I dont rake, it would take forever.To many folks do that 20'x20' deal in the woods expecting great results without enough sunlight.

IMO its great for small, exclusive plots. My experience with it was a small 20x20 plot on the top of a ridge on some public land. came up in several days after a good rain. killed several mature does over it!

I used a clover blend from plot spike this year and did some prep deep in the woods. It is doing great, Thick clover, I never had good luck with other brands, but this stuff worked great

Well,I used the throw and grow on Labor Day and soon's I get out to my lease, I'll report back and I'm taking my camera. We raked and sowed and tamped an area and we have had enough rain, I am expecting a lot of growth. With the leftover seed, I just kinda threw it around the area we worked on and I'll see how that did in relation to the worked area. What concerns me literally within hours of this work we had a lot of wind and very heavy rain. And since this lease has a lot of oak and persimmon, I am not expecting any sign of browse but it will be interesting.

The biggest problem with "Throw and Grow" is that it is 90% annual ryegrass. Deer will eat ryegrass, especially when it first germinates, but as it matures it falls rapidly in preference and digestibility.

Like most have said. The main ingredients are rape 1%, wheat 60% and the rest is rye. Save yourself some cash and go to the co-op. 40 lb bag of winter wheat and some smaller bags of clover, turnips, rape and your good to go. You should be able to plant double the area for the same cost.

Okay, as promised. throw and grow. Labor Day, mostly raked, sown, covered, tamped, rained within an hour. rain carried a lot of it down trail but the effect isn't bad. Thing is, as mentioned, most of the seed is rye, which will sprout on a concrete block.

This is where I just kinda threw it around

All in all, not what I am looking for. There is some very weak looking leaved sprouts, and nothing has been browsed at all.

Here is one of my throw and grow co-op mixes from last year. I mowed, sowed, and sprayed. You gotta have sunlight to have photosynthesis and growth.
