SeaLink is a slender creeping red fescue that is naturally tolerant of saline conditions. It was developed as a shade tolerant, attractive turf grass adapted to both low fertility and saline soil. It has a very fine leaf texture and forms a dense attractive sward which is well adapted to conditions of low fertility and low pH.
It has excellent cold and shade tolerances and in the growing season spreads from the production of slender rhizomes. SeaLink has an attractive medium dark green colour that mixes and blends
well with other turf grasses such as Kentucky bluegrasses and perennial ryegrass. It is suited to areas normally using cool season grasses in home lawns, parks and low maintenance shady situations such as golf course roughs.
- Salt tolerant
- Shade tolerant
- Low maintenance
- Excellent winter colour
The recommended seeding rate of SeaLink red fescue is between 20-30g/m2 (200-300kg/ha). With warm soil temperatures,
germination will occur within 6-14 days
Annual fertiliser requirements should be calculated from a soil analysis taken from the site being sown. A pre-plant application of a complete fertiliser is recommended for initial establishment. Once established, SeaLink can be maintained at low to medium fertility levels ranging from 0-150kg actual N per hectare per year. Once established, SeaLink has good drought tolerance for a fine
fescue. SeaLink can tolerate mowing heights to 12mm, but also forms an attractive turf sward under minimal or no mowing situations
