4 min read

Wondering about the best grass seed to plant in Minnesota?  Look no further than Jonathan Green for the answers you need. Our knowledgeable team can provide the answers you need to grow a lush, healthy lawn.

Jonathan Green has been committed to excellence since 1881. We supply grass seed, soil enhancers, fertilizer, and organic lawn and garden products to professional customers, such as sod growers and independent retailers throughout the United States, and homeowners via the JonathanGreen.com online store.

Choose Premium Seed

Your lawn will never be better than the grass seed you plant, so we recommend seeding with either Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed or Black Beauty® Fall Magic Grass Seed.

  • Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed from Jonathan Green is most similar to what is found on sod farms. The mixture has species diversity and contains exclusive, elite varieties of tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, and perennial ryegrass.  These grasses grow a naturally dark-green and beautiful lawn with excellent heat and drought tolerance.  Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed germinates in about 14 days and will improve any lawn you seed with it.
  • Black Beauty® Fall Magic Grass Seed has been specially formulated for successful fall seeding and contains several grass types, including Black Beauty® tall fescues. It can be used in sunny and shady lawn areas on established lawns or to start new lawns from scratch. Black Beauty® Fall Magic Grass Seed repairs summer damage and provides an attractive, thicker, greener lawn, with germination in 10 to 14 days.

Provide the Best Growing Environment

Organic Lawn Food is a complex, organic lawn food that promotes strong grass growth. It can also rejuvenate a thin, stressed lawn by adding organic content to the soil. The easy-to-spread granules can be used on established and newly seeded lawns or when sodding.

Organic Lawn Food contains food-grade organic soil amendments, such as Feather Meal, Soybean Meal, Blood Meal, Sulfate of Potash and Calcium Carbonate, that help improve soil structure and the soil’s water-holding capacity. It will also help your lawn withstand environmental stress.

Its key features include:

  • Complex, all-organic lawn food
  • Promotes strong grass growth
  • Use on newly seeded and established lawns or when sodding
  • Use in spring, summer, or fall
  • Pet-friendly

The innovative Jonathan Green Mag-I-Cal® Plus combines our Mag-I-Cal® and Love Your Soil® products to help stimulate soil microbes, break up compacted soils, make the soil more porous alive, improve root penetration, and increase biological activity while helping release trapped nutrients in the soil.

Use our Soil pH Test Kit for Lawns to determine the pH of your soil in just a few minutes. Based on the results, choose either Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Acidic & Hard Soil, which contains calcium, sulfur, iron, humic acid, and wood biochar, or Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Alkaline & Hard Soil, which contains calcium carbonate in a completely soluble form, as well as sulfur and other amendments.
