Customer Reviews

Great for clay or hard soil

We have terrible call soil we have struggled with in our area. I decided to plant this one year between our tomato rows as a weed suppression. It not only suppresses weeds but grows radishes up to 1 foot long that are also 2 inches thick. The leaves lie flat on the ground and are as thick as lettuce leaves. Leave these in the ground as we did and the following year you have much better softer soil. It was a 25% improvement of our clay soil and cheaper than bringing in more soil. We buy every year by the pound to slowly improve the soil all over our property in different areas. The bees love it as well which is a bonus and it seems drought resistant once established. I have noticed better results when planted in the early spring as opposed to the fall. We live in zone 6B.
