Traditionally in Ohio, warm and cool season grasses are seeded in early spring through May when soil temperatures and conditions allow.  Dormant seedings, on the other hand, are done from December 1 to March 14 for cool season grasses and from November 1 to March 14 for warm season species.  When the soil temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit or cooler, the seeds will remain dormant and not germinate until the soil warms up again in the spring.
