As a cover crop, 'Crimson Clover' is excellent for improving the texture and fertility of the soil. It can return as much as one hundred pounds of nitrogen per acre when it is cultivated under as a green manure. 1/4 ounce is approximately 1,500 seeds and covers about 75 square feet.
Seed germination and survival require cool, but not cold, night temperatures (less than 60"F) and sufficient soil moisture.
Plant in the fall, four weeks before your average first hard frost. Broadcast over your prepared seedbed and rake in, ¼ to ½ deep. Keep evenly moist and germination should occur in 14 days. In cold climates, it will go dormant and resume growth in the spring. More Information:
