Cover Crop Clover Mammoth Red Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
The best clover for poor soils. Tall (2 to 3 feet), quick-growing clover. Sow in spring, summer or fall. Will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0 to 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. In addition to its uses for nitrogen fixation and as forage, the flowers of red clover may be used to garnish drinks, salads, soups, and desserts; the flavor is sweet and mild.
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 up to 70 to 110 pounds of nitrogen per acre. The long tap roots loosen soils and mine phosphorus and other nutrients from deep in the soil. It should be seeded with 1 and 1/2 to 2 bushels/acre of oats to "nurse" the clover. Blooms in about 70 to 90 days. Germination rate about 80% or better. David’s Garden Seeds is a Veteran owned business that has been offering quality seeds since 2009
