Great to prep Garden Soil

I planted this to renew my soil in the off season in the garden. The following year's crop turned out amazing.

Build that soil

Super easy and cheap way to add nitrogen and organic matter to my garden. Sprouts up quick when planted in the fall. I also use a layer of straw if I end up planting later than planned.

Very Good

Sprouted fast on a slope in poor soil, seems to be a very good mix. Will buy again.

Great cover crop and green manure!

This mix sprouted so fast and vigorously in my N. Minnesota garden, it is now my favorite cover crop and green manure. It's pretty, too!

Excellent

This is an excellent product for fall growing here in Eastern Tennessee. Sprouts quick, grows easily and stands up well to any weather.
