I wouldn’t. They don’t usually keep until the next season, at least according to Scotts. If it doesn’t and you try to file a claim with Scotts, they’ll first ask for the manufacture date that is on the bag UPC. If you don’t have that, they’ll ask for proof or purchase which will show that you bought it a year before. They might cover it, but I doubt it.

I’ve filed two claims with them (both times I threw the bags out just being absent-minded). They asked for receipts which I provided. Both times they told me that I probably got a bag that was sitting on the shelf too long. I’m not a horticulturist, but I have to imagine they know what they’re talking about. Anyway, they refunded me no problem, but I used the bags right away. Good to note, though, to check the dates on the bags when you buy them in store. Obviously you can’t do that if you buy online.

I wouldn't suggest that. I planted 2 year old Scotts grass seed that was in a sealed bag and got zero grass seed to germinate. I don't think that most grass seed germinates very well if it is over 1 year old.
09-27-2021 at 10:34 AM
The gemination rate will be less than it is now. Think of seeds like batteries that run off of the sugar stored in them. The seed is not viable when there is not enough sugar left in the seed to germinate. Like a real battery, you can slow down the sugar consumption used by the seed in storage by storing the seed in a cold place or a freezer.
09-27-2021 at 10:34 AM
You can store this away from humidity and temperatures below 60F to retain relatively good germination rate next Spring. Most test dates on label are good from 6-10 months so be sure to check test date expiry.

Most of the people in this answer section are simply wrong. I used Scotts grass seed I had stored in my garage from last fall that I got on sale and planted it this fall. My garage gets freezing cold in the winter. The bag was unopened. The main thing is to cover your grass seed with peat moss and water twice a day for 2 weeks. Most people don't do that, therefore their grass seed doesn't germinate. Get peat moss.

In central Oklahoma, I use it only in shaded areas and it does not always survives the summer

Yes you can. They are also frost tolerant so don't worry about them dying when you get snow during winter.

Depends on where in Arizona you live. This grass seed is for the "transition zone" of the United States. This is from Scott's on Amazon. This is their visual map: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/719voTyaiPL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

no, all grass needs sun.

"shade" grass still requires sunlight. The label says grows with as little as 3 hours of sun per day.

Note that this is not good for northern states. Good deal for others.
There is tall fescue seed in this mix. This product contains 15% 4th Millennium Tall Fescue, 15% Duration Tall Fescue, 15% Endeavor II Tall Fescue, 5% Wendy Jean Fine Fescue, and 50% WaterSmart Plus Coating (Zeba water absorbent coating with fertilizer and fungicide). The types and breakdowns of seeds can change throughout the year due to availability.

If anyone wants to go full nerd

I got 50lb of 4th millennium for about $233

Scotts wants about 4x to mix a seed coating and instructions just be careful on if you need to overseed or renovate because your amounts won't add up; technically you need to seed 50% more on scotts since theirs is heavier if you want dense turf which means you needs to buy 50% more
I have found no grass seed that grows well in dense shade.

This is a nice deal for transition lawns. Just be careful if you are in that zone before purchasing.

Will this work for areas that are shaded by trees most of the day? I had a big grass spot struggling under my big tree that has lots of shade.
