Collar nursery update
Some of you might have noticed last week that we covered our collar nursery with a white semipermeable cover. I had the staff put the cover on last week because of the cold temperatures that were predicted. The green had started to germinate but had not begin to fill in so the cover was put in place to artificially increase the temperature of the soil as well as protect the new seedlings from a hard frost which would slow the new growth. With the warmer weather predicted this week, we have removed the cover to allow the turf to grow, add additional fertilizer and to apply a fungicide to protect it from disease which can occur during a new grow-in of a green.
