I bought this at TSC for 50% off ($5) the seed mixture is 34% Rye Grass, 15% Alfalfa, 15% White Clover, 14% Flax, 10% Red Clover, and the rest stuff that doesn't matter.. is this something I need to wait until spring to plant or is it like grass seed and I can plant it in fall? I figured I would ask in case anyone in here has already dealt with mixes like this. I plant to grow trays of it in the green house for fodder if I can not get it spread out this fall.

Most grasses sprout best in the 70s for daytime temps. I’ll be looking for some of that at TSC!

It was on Clearance in the cheap bins up front... I only saw it at one TSC and not all of them.

I found it on Ebay for $18 or $19 ... it may not be priced as low as I got it because I believe my local store was just trying to unload it.

Found it online at TSC for $9.99 which is a reasonable price. Hopefully your TSC has it half off like mine did

They cancelled that part of my order so I guess they don’t have it. Oh well.

Most rural places have bulk seed companies that will make it for you for very low price in the ratio you want. Shipping is a bummer if you have to order it.
I like stock seeds company, which is just down the road from me. I use them a LOT.
See if there is somewhere around you like that.
Even some country co-ops will mix you up a batch of what you need.
