When can I seed & start a centipede lawn. Why is it so hard in my area to find this seed? (Richmond)

Centipedegrass is a warm-season grass and is not reliably hardy in your area. Richmond is considered to be in hardiness zone 7a. Centipedegrass is marginally hardy in zone 7b which is warmer than zone7a. Many seed companies recommend this grass for zones 8-10. This is probably why you can't find the seed locally.

I have a centipede lawn in Middlesex County on the Rappahannock. Part is sodded and most of it I grew from seed. Best place to get seed is from tifblair.com. It is not cheap. Follow instructions carefully. It is a labor of love because it is slow growing (once established this is one of its many attributes).
