Good Seed, Bad Seed

In March of this year, I seeded my lawn with tall fescue. I didn't use all of the seed I purchased, and the open bag has been sitting in my garage all summer.

Can I use this seed to overseed my lawn now in September? Is there a way to test seed freshness? (color, smell, feel???)


(I live in Charlotte -- very humid)

Good Seed, Bad Seed

Throw some soil on a plate, seed it and keep it moist for a week or so. Take a pic of the seeded plate to compare to what you get for germination.
