Orchard grass, Dactylis glomerata is a long-lived perennial that grows in clumps. It is a vigorous grass that produces more summer regrowth than Timothy grass. Establish in spring, summer or in late winter / very early spring by frost seeding. Frost seeding lets the snow and frost do the work - simply broadcast seed and allow snow and frost to work the seed into soil.
