I’m Scratching My Head On This One?


Tough winter. Helaine bought some grass seed to fill in a few of the bare spots that didn’t survive. It’s EZ Seed Turf Builder from Scott’s.

The expiration date is printed on the side of the container. That’s understandable. You want seed that will germinate.

What’s weird is there are different expiration dates for different states!

The default expiration date is 7/31/2013, but that’s not a uniform date. Why are these seeds good until 2014 here in Connecticut, but only the end of May in Florida and the end of October in four other states?

Obviously, too much time on my hands at the moment.
