I like the mix very much

I have been buying this mix the past 3 years. Germination is always very good and healthy results.

Comments on planting

Just used and 1) glad someone called out need for inoculant. Would have bought without. 2) Coverage is a joke. Found 2lb/250 square feet needed. 3) Inoculant calls for 133ML of water - really now. Also no specification of ratio of inoculant to seed....Back to you when the cover grows.

Ok

It's only a few inches tall. Can't really say how well it has been adding organic matter to our shop, but in a few weeks, if it doesn't frost, it should be a good improvement.

Good Product

I plant this every year for my fall cover crop and it always grows well and improves my soil.

Great cover crop!

It's the second year I've used this mix and it creates a beautiful stand of greenery in the garden. I use some of the greens to cook and let it enrich and feed the soil food web over the winter.
