Due to warmer weather in Central Texas, you will normally need to wait until mid-November to plant or overseed with winter rye grass. This type of grass normally need about a 65 degree ground temperature to thrive. The rye grass needs to stay moist for about 72 hours to germinate and begin growing. It will normally last until early or mid-spring when the weather heats back up.
