Question:We have been experimenting with Bermuda grass with considerable sucess. Our soil is quite sandy with some clay mixed with it. Do you believe Bermuda grass satisfactory for turf purposes in this section? In planting Bermuda grass is it necessary to plant grass that has roots formed or will the "knuckles" or "joints" of the stalk take root? Can you suggest a better grass for this type of soil?

Answer/Response:Bermuda grass may do well in Maryland in certain areas that have a southern exposure. For general planting, however, it is likely to be unsuccessful due to the fact that it may partly winterkill. In planting Bermuda grass it is not necessary to have roots on the stolons for new roots will be produced at each of the "joints." Ordinarily Kentucky bluegrass will give best results for turf in your section. It may be mixed with 20 percent redtop for general seeding purposes.
