      Hi Sandy, In that situation, probably best to scatter a little compost, spread RED CLOVER, rake and tamp. Red clover seems to rebuild the soil faster than anything. Oats in this case not a good quick fix.

      Hello Laura,
      Thanks for staying in touch. 1 packet (5g) of oat seeds contains appx. 170 seeds. Yes, this is the type for “milky oats.”
