Types of Bermuda Grass Seed
HULLED & UN-HULLED SEED - Common Bermuda Grass seed is sold as both hulled and un-hulled seeds. Hulled seeds have the seed husk removed and germinate faster while un-hulled still have
a natural seed husk that generally delays germination. This delay is natures way of waiting for more ideal conditions and ensuring a species survival. Under good growing conditions hulled
seed will create a faster established pasture or lawn. Coated seed have a special chemical coating applied that helps in germination and reduces loss to birds. Read more about bermuda
