Trifolium repens var. Perennial legume cover crop.
Lowest-growing (6"-10") perennial white clover, often planted in lawns because it tolerates regular mowing and shade, and requires summer irrigation. Recommended by M. Fukuoka (The One Straw Revolution) for use in permanent vegetable and row crop plantings.
Spreads rapidly, chokes weeds and can be invasive. Does well on acid to moderately alkaline soils. Prefers moist, well-drained soil with plenty of lime, phosphate and potash, and is adversely affected by synthetic Nitrogen. Does not tolerate heat and sun as well as New Zealand White Clover. Plant 0.25"-0.5 deep, 0.5-1 lb/1000 sq ft or 15-20 lb/acre in fall or spring.
NOTE to Certified Organic Growers: This is conventional seed, but the seed is coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
