triple threat seeds

I’m prepping to overseed my TTTF lawn here in Raleigh within the next couple of weeks. Particularly, though, I’m concerned with two problem spots, one in our front yard and one in the back. Both spots get a heavy dosage of sun, and both give me yearly problems. Each year I feel like I get it corrected, they look great coming out of spring and going into Summer, but as soon as the temps spike, they die off. Probably

Anyone have recommendations for specific TTTF blends for such a situation?

Hi All, Longtime Lurker here.

Triple threat seeds

The term ‘Triple Threat’ has a popular, yet non-literal meaning while it could also be used literally . We are lining up two opportunities for participants to earn three plants for each of the conservation activities we are promoting using both the literal and non-literal meaning of the term ‘Triple Threat’!

When used in the popular, non-literal sense, ‘Triple Threat’ is typically defined as someone who is proficient in three skills in their field – for instance in theater it could be someone that can sing, dance and act or in football, someone that can run, pass and punt. Well, Mother Nature has a few of her own ‘Triple Threats’ and they are often referred to as Keystone Species and are the plants that provide the most environmental function in an ecosystem. Click on the Triple Threat Keystone Species button below to learn more about you can add a triple threat to your landscape.

In sharp contrast to how keystone species provide essential ecosystem services, we can use the literal meaning of the term ‘Triple Threat’ to speak to the disruption of ecosystem functions that occur when invasive species are introduced into our natural areas.
