Cover Crop Clover Mammoth Red Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds 10 Ounce Package
The best clover for poor soils. A tall (2 to 3 feet), quick-growing clover. Sow in spring, summer or fall, alone or with grain/grass. Will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at seeding time. Widely grown biennial used for Nitrogen addition and hay crops. Large plant with big leaves makes it an ideal grazing crop. Red clover may be the best choice for frost seeding; it is extremely cold hardy and does well in most soils and growing conditions. It does, like most clovers, perform poorly in hot weather unless seeded into a crop canopy. Incorporate fully for best results. Mammoth Red clover will fix between 70 to110 pounds nitrogen per acre. The long taproots loosen soils and mine phosphorus and other nutrients from deep in the soil. Edible Flowers: The flowers of red clover may be used to garnish drinks, salads, soups, and desserts; the flavor is sweet and mild. Harvest in about 100 days. Germination rate is about 80% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
