Purchasing Turfgrass Seed

High quality grass seed can be difficult to source.  For this reason, we have compiled a list (below) of vendors that distribute turfgrass seed in Minnesota.  Please be sure to keep in mind the basic principles in purchasing turfgrass seed before deciding on a mixture for your situation.  These principles are explained by Dr. Eric Watkins in the post “Finding The Right Grass Seed.”  This list is presented for practical purposes, and in no way implies endorsement of these companies by the University of Minnesota.  If you are a seed vendor and would like your company included in this list, please email Sam Bauer (sjbauer@umn.edu).
