Peaceful Valley Low-Growing Clover Mix - Nitrocoated Seed (lb)

Popular Cover Crop for Orchards and Vineyards

Perennial legume cover crop. Formerly called Tree & Vine Mix, this is our most popular cover crop for irrigated, mowed orchards, and vineyards.

Dutch White Clover thrives in cool weather and shade. Palestine Strawberry Clover prefers heat, sun, and neutral to alkaline soil. Spreads by seed and runners and forms a dense sod which will support tractor work in wet weather.

  • Application Rate: 0.25 to 0.5 deep at 0.5-1.0 lb/1000 sq ft or 20-25 lb/acre

  • Inoculant: None needed, is nitrocoated

  • Germination: 5-10 Days

  • Plant Height: 16"

  • Uses: Builds Nitrogen (at 165 lb/year/acre), provides nectar and habitat for beneficials. Deep roots reduce soil compaction and erosion.

  • Facts to Note: All perennial clovers have a tendency to increase slug and gopher populations monitoring is advised. Drill or broadcast in fall or spring on a firm seedbed.

 

Low growing clover seed is an ideal choice for improving soil health, particularly in clay soil types. These seeds have the remarkable ability to penetrate soil particles, aiding in soil structure improvement and aeration. A low growing clover mix is a versatile solution for enhancing cropping rotations and improving soil conditions across a wide range of environments.

This mix comprises various clover species selected for their adaptability and ability to thrive in diverse soil conditions. With their high-quality foliage and root systems, these clovers effectively stabilize the soil surface, providing excellent erosion control even in warm-season climates. By densely covering the soil, they reduce runoff and enhance water infiltration, promoting a healthier soil structure for future plantings.

Additionally, the low-growing nature of these clovers allows them to coexist harmoniously with other plants, facilitating cropping rotations and supporting sustainable agricultural practices aimed at maximizing land productivity while preserving soil health.In clay soil, where compaction often restricts root growth and limits soil moisture retention, low growing clover seed helps to break up dense layers, allowing for better infiltration of water and nutrients.

As the plant roots establish and spread, they contribute to the development of a robust root system, further enhancing soil health. By increasing soil organic matter and fostering beneficial microbial activity, low growing clover seed plays a crucial role in maintaining soil fertility and supporting healthy plant growth.

Low-Growing Clover Seed Mix

Clover is a versatile and beneficial plant that can serve various purposes in your garden or landscape. One excellent option to consider is the Low-Growing Clover Mix, which features nitrocoated seeds.

Understanding Nitrocoated Seeds

Before diving into the specifics of the Low-Growing Clover Mix, it's crucial to understand what nitrocoated seeds are. Nitrocoating is a process where seeds are coated with a water-soluble fertilizer called ammonium nitrate for better growth. This coating provides several advantages:

  1. Enhanced Germination: Nitrocoated seeds germinate more uniformly and quickly due to the readily available nutrients provided by the fertilizer coating.

  2. Healthy Early Growth: The nutrients in the coating support the initial stages of seedling development, promoting healthier and more robust plants.

  3. Reduced Fertilizer Requirements: Nitrocoated seeds reduce the need for additional fertilization during the early growth stages, making them cost-effective.

The Low-Growing Clover Mix

The Low-Growing clover Mix is a special blend of different clover types chosen for their unique qualities and advantages. This mix typically includes Dutch White Clover (Trifolium repens) and Microclover (Trifolium repens var. Pirouette). These clover species have distinct traits that make them ideal for specific purposes:

  1. Dutch White Clover: Dutch White Clover is a low-growing, nitrogen-fixing plant known for its ability to improve soil fertility naturally. It forms a dense, lush carpet of foliage and is excellent for use as a ground cover.

  2. Microclover: Microclover is a smaller, more compact variety of white clover that is perfect for lawns. It grows shorter than traditional grasses and provides a soft, green carpet that is both attractive and functional.

Benefits of the Low-Growing Clover Mix

  1. Nitrogen Fixation: One of the most significant advantages of this mix is its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen into the soil. This natural process improves soil fertility, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers in your garden.

  2. Weed Suppression: The dense growth of the clover mix helps suppress weed growth by shading out unwanted plants. This makes it an excellent choice for weed control in lawns and garden beds.

  3. Drought Tolerance: Clover is known for its resilience in dry conditions. It can tolerate drought better than many traditional grasses, making it an eco-friendly and water-efficient choice.

  4. Wildlife Habitat: The Low-Growing Clover Mix attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, contributing to a more biodiverse and vibrant garden ecosystem.

How to Use the Low-Growing Clover Mix

  1. Lawn Replacement: To establish a low-maintenance, eco-friendly lawn, overseed your existing grass with the Low-Growing Clover Mix. It will create a lush, green carpet that requires less mowing and watering.

  2. Ground Cover: Use this mix as a ground cover in garden beds, around trees, or in between pavers. Its dense growth will prevent soil erosion and keep weeds at bay.

  3. Green Manure: Incorporate the clover into your vegetable garden by planting it as a cover crop. It can be turned into the soil to improve soil structure and fertility.

  4. Wildflower Companions: Plant the Low-Growing Clover Mix alongside wildflowers to create a vibrant and pollinator-friendly garden.

The Low-Growing Clover Mix with nitrocoated seeds is a versatile and environmentally friendly choice for your gardening projects. Its nitrogen-fixing capabilities, weed suppression, and drought tolerance make it an excellent addition to any garden or landscape. Whether you're looking to create a lush lawn, improve soil fertility, or attract beneficial wildlife, this product offers a range of benefits that can enhance the beauty and functionality of your outdoor space.
