Trifolium repens Perennial legume cover crop.

Lowest-growing 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.

  • Application Rate: 0.25"-0.5" deep, 0.5-1 lb/1000 sq ft or 15-20 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: None needed, seed is nitrocoated
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 8"
  • Use: Cover crop, turf, erosion control
  • Facts to Note: 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. Plant in fall or spring.

Note to Certified Organic Growers: All our cover crop seed is untreated, non-GMO seed. 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.

I ordered the Dutch White Clover for a nectar crop for my honeybees. I order all my seeds from Peaceful Valley, great service and pricing.

Seems like every seed germinates

Shipping was fast and the seed seems to be top quality. I sprinkled it rather thinly, because I wanted to cover a large amount of ground, and it's coming up thickly anyway -- it's like every seed must have sprouted. I did price comparisons and this seemed like the best combination of low price and high quality.

Excellent product

It is actually amazing how well this product worked. I have a very difficult part of my backyard that required some ground cover and nitrogen replenishment. Watered, poured on the seeds and went away. Came back to check after a business trip and I thought: "What the hell? This is some sorcery! How is there so much growth? Are these seeds magic? Like the Jack and the Beanstalk beans?" Seriously though, frighteningly good....

Very happy

Great seeds, we saw sprouts in less than 5 days. Looking forward to a clover lawn!
