I am looking for an overseeding grass seed that Brian Minter once recommended.......Elka Perennial 2 RyeGrass......have not been able to find it in recent years in the Lower Mainland of BC....does anyone know of a grass seed that is similiar to this, or if Elka is still available??

Thank you

Hi Russ,

For overseeding I have used a nice grass seed mix from Buckerfield's called Play Green. It has rye grass seed in it as well as fescue. It is a mix that is good for high traffic areas as well. I believe there is a Buckerfield's store in Abbotsford. Good-luck!

Hello Russ, new member here. If you're still seeking Elka II, there's a wholesaler called who carries it - check his website. His warehouse is in Langley, B.C. Say hi to John Taylor for me! Alan
