Not wishing to tread on anyones toes. Firstly. Soil temperature has zilch to do with it, no disrespects. In fact one would asume that grass seed would spring up over night. Being as supposed one of the creme de'la creme of grasses. It could be, that you have in fact buried the seed. Sprinkle the seed on a prepared area, the gently rake it in. Might I summise. The ground is too dry, or is too solid, or as mentioned you have buried the seed. Example. A busy well used sports fieled. Soccar. especially the center spot and the goal area. Likewise the cricket pitch. As soon as play stopped, game over. Out there, rakes and tines etc. Sedd and leave. By the next match, all was good in the garden. Grass seed is much like mustard and cress. It will spring up over night. Try laying a sheet of polythene over the area, during the night. Make sure you remove it at day break. If no resultsin a week. complain to your seed supplier, either that, or the birdies have had a good feed, at your expense.
