Cover Crop Buckwheat Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Sow Buckwheat any time between last spring frost and 1 month prior to first fall frost. A great quick summer crop, fast growing plants choke out weeds. Bees love the white flowers that appear in 4 to 5 weeks.
The tender stems are easy to cut down when the crop's done. For a fall/winter cover crop we recommend sowing buckwheat together with crimson clover. The buckwheat acts as a nurse crop for the crimson clover during the heat of the day. In the fall, the buckwheat is killed by frost. Mature in 30 to 45 days as a green manure crop and 80 days for a grain. Germination rate about 80% or better.
