Can I Plant Grass Seed in November?

It is possible to plant grass seed in November. Some varieties do well when planted in early November. Cool-season grass seed varieties typically do better than others, but most grass types lay dormant until the temperature rises in the spring.

Grass sprouts quickly when the weather remains mild during the winter. This is especially true for grass seed planted in the milder southern planting zones. Planting grass in early November allows the seeds to germinate and get ready to grow, whether they sprout early or wait until the temperatures warm up. Grass should be watered regularly for two weeks after planting.
