An excellent choice for dynamic soil improvement

This premium soil builder mix has the perfect blend of legumes and grain to give your soil the boost of fertility it needs come Spring time. I sow mine in the fall here in the Bay Area of CA. I let it grow through the beginning of Spring, and then cut it at its base near the soil surface. I haul the green matter to build a compost pile and let the root matter decompose in place without disturbing the soil. I find it helpful to sprinkle on some good quality compost afterwards and then drench the area with an application of compost tea. This facilitates the magic of fertility quickly and effectively!

Zone 5B. Fall planted grew to about 12 inches. It was ok and I'm sure it will grow better when my soil builds up to support its proper growth.

Favorite Cover Crop

This is my favorite cover crop. I usually sow this in October or early November.....depending on what the weather is up to. Sprouts up easy. Had to cover it with Agribon to keep the wild birds and my own chickens from eating it. It still sprouted up strong! Usually some straw or compost is enough, but they were hungry this year.

Use this when your not using garden beds

I use this as soon as my spring garden is done. It provides a lot of organic matter, and keeps the weeds out of my garden beds.
