Alfalfa will grow better if started after the last frost of the spring, once established grass stands in other locations start to show steady growth. Alfalfa can be started at any point during the growing season, once conditions become favorable. Like most seeds, they require warmth and plenty of water to germinate. Do not start in arid or excessively dry locations or conditions. If sowing in fall, do not sow later than one month prior to the first average frost of the fall.
