Anyone know where I can get a 25 lb bag of bermuda seed around here? Between Lowe's and Home Depot, I've only found Fescue/Blue etc and one lonely 5 lb bag of Bermuda.

Bermuda grass is often sold in smaller quanities because it takes much less seed than Fescue. You only need about 1 pound per 1000 sq. ft. for seeding Bermuda opposed to 8-10 lbs. for Fescue.
Be careful seeding Bermuda, mix the seed with sand to help get more even distribution. It's a really tiny seed, and very hard to keep in place until germination.
In addition to AgriSupply you might also consider calling Wyatt Quarrels Seed also in Garner.

If you want to go mail order try Seedland.Com. It may be a tad early for Bermuda and thats why you aren't seeing much in the stores.

The BEST time to plant Bermuda seed is in late spring / early summer after soil temperatures are 65-70+ degrees or higher and all danger of freeze or frost is past. This generally takes 80+ consistent day highs in temperatures to achieve this level of temperature in the soil.
