Fescue grass seed typically germinates between 10 and 14 days, provided the grass was planted properly. Once grown, fescue is considered to be a low maintenance grass and can tolerate heat and drought very well, according to Seedland.com.
The best time to plant fescue grass is in the fall or spring. Because germination is best when the soil temperatures are between 50 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of grass tends to go dormant in very high and very low temperatures, making it important to keep an eye on the temperature at all times for the best time to plant the seeds.
