I did not say spring isn't suitable. I said spring is not the best time. Autumn is.
The ground is much warm after the summer and there is more moisture about, the seed will get off to a better start before the winter and weeds will be at a minimal. Then, during the late autumn, a good root system will develop, as opposed to top growth, and your lawn will be in top notch order for the next spring and summer, ready to sustain hot, dry spells.
English summers can get hot, dry spells and if your new lawn is sown in the spring, a lot of watering will be needed to get growth started and to stop young seedlings from being scorched and killed off.
