Worked Great

This mix works amazing, great fall cover crop
Just make sure to store it in a mouse proof container, those little monsters ate 1/3 of it over the winter.

Great stuff

I have used this for many years now and it always does well. I can't say how much nitrogen it really adds but after I turn it it in, wait a few weeks and then plant vegetables I always have a good crop.

Fantastic

I have used this blend all over my new property this fall to add nutrients to the soil and keep the hillside in place during the rains. It is an outstanding, fast growing mix with no grasses. Creates lots of biomass for chop and drop or compost. Most importantly, some early planting tests shows my sloped garden is filled with worms and very pliable - and it remains on the hillside. I will never ued anything else.

Silly Me : (

I didn't read enough about this product. In a hurry! It is too late for me to plant the mix here in Maine. AND I forgot to order the inoculant. I am going to save the seed and hopefully it will germinate for next early Sept. I won't forget to get the inoculant. Too early to order it now as it has a shelf life of about a year which usually means out of date in Dec. 2018.
