We developed this mix especially for vegetable rotations and general cool-weather cover cropping. Soil Builder is not filled with cheap grasses like other mixes. Contains the highest-yielding winter-hardy legumes with cayuse oats added to stabilize the soil, and to nurse and scaffold the vetches.
Formulation may vary based on availability. Currently the mix contains: Bell Beans, BioMaster Peas, Frostmaster Peas, Purple Vetch, Hairy Vetch, Common Vetch and Cayuse Oats
I've used this as a winter cover crop (in both Las Vegas, NV & Charlotte, NC) on vegetable beds in rotation since 1999. It's plenty cold hardy under Quick Hoops in Zone 7. I love it!Review by NC Drew (on 4/14/12)
