SeedBooster® - The Lawn Energizer
Lawns sown with SeedBooster® coated seeds require less work and gives more playing time in the garden due to better establishment and better root development.
Our SeedBooster® coating gives the seeds all the nitrogen fertiliser they need to get off to a cracking start. When the lawn is sown with SeedBooster® two jobs are done in one time-saving operation: the sowing of the seed and the dressing of nitrogen that usually follows.
Because the SeedBooster® coating surrounds the lawn seeds, they can tap into the nitrogen straight away. It's like sowing seeds with their own packed lunch. Nothing goes to waste either. If the lawn was to be fertilised in a separate operation (which is the traditional method), the weeds would be fertilised along with the grass seed. SeedBooster® doesn't let those nutrients go to waste; it keeps them all for the lawn seeds.

SeedBooster® gives both fast- and slow-acting nitrogen
SeedBooster® is a huge step forward in seed-coating technology. The combination of fast- and slow-release nitrogen feeds germinating seeds and seedlings during their first crucial month of life. In tests, researchers found far less leaching of nitrogen with SeedBooster® than you'd get with regular grass seed and a standard fertiliser application. That is good for the environment.
SeedBooster® is far more effective too. It contains 10% nitrogen - at least five times as much nitrogen as the 1% to 2% typically found in other seed coatings. There's so little nitrogen in most seed coatings, the effects are negligible.
30% more plants with SeedBooster®
Since no nitrogen goes to waste with SeedBooster®, roots and shoots grow rapidly, providing strong and vigorous seedlings. That's what makes SeedBooster® such a useful technology for lawns that are subject to heavy use.
When the Sports Turf Research Institute tested SeedBooster®, they found that coated seed establishes significantly better. As many as 30% more plants survive the establishment phase, and the roots are more than 30% longer. This gives a denser lawn with roots that reach down further. Deep roots are especially useful during a drought where they dig deeper for the moisture your lawn needs to survive.
Why choose SeedBooster®
- No wasted fertiliser is better for the environment
- The fertiliser feeds the seeds, not the weeds
- The grass seed gets a boost and grows into a lawn faster
