  • Inoculant: Pea Vetch or Garden Combination Inoculant (sold separately)
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 4 - 6'
  • Uses: Extraordinary yields of Nitrogen (up to 290 lb/acre) and organic matter (up to 49 tons/acre). Weed competition and provides excellent habitat for beneficial insects.

Essential!

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!
