The Q&A Archives: Planting Grass Seed in November

Question: Is it too late to reseed our yard? The weather has been mild for several days 45 degrees and rainy.

Answer: It's a little late to be planting grass seed. The idea is to give the plants a head start on spring growth by planting in the fall so they can establish a root system--since the soil temperature stays warm long after the air temperature cools. Now that it's late November, the soil will soon, if it hasn't yet, freeze. Better to wait until early spring to apply seed.
