STRI Bingley top rank
In all trial types HUMBOLDT reaches the top level.
Outstanding scores for shoot density, visual merit and resistance to red thread. Can advantageously be added to mixtures with Browntop bent and Slender creeping red fescue on top playing golf greens. For further sustainability in pure fine fescue greens: Chewings + Slender creeping red fescue.
Mown at lawn height (in UK conditions this is still very close mowing!), HUMBOLDT is incredibly dense and fine. Go for it for the most demanding prestige lawns!
Chewings fescue has one of the very best winter hardiness levels.
Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced
