About White Dutch Clover Cover Crop Garden Seeds

Heirloom White Dutch clover seeds are traditionally grown as a cool-hardy cover crop broadcasted directly in early fall for spring tilling but can be sown in spring as a summer companion plant. For traditional garden harvests or ornamental planting, sow 2-3 White Dutch clover cover crop seeds ½" deep and 2-3" apart in fertile, loamy, and well-drained garden soil in full sun. White Dutch clover is a proven cover crop and will thrive in difficult and poor soils. Non-GMO White Dutch clover seeds germinate in 7-14 days with no thinning required. Heirloom Trifolium repens is a hardy cool-season cover crop with no serious pests or diseases. When seeded as a cover crop, mow non-GMO clover before it goes to seed, mulching clover back into garden soil before sowing new crop. Springtime reseeding of clover will help minimize weeds in the garden and grow space. Non-GMO White Dutch clover seed is popularly grown with ryegrass as both an effective companion plant and a nutritiously dense source of animal fodder.

White Dutch Clover Benefits

Non-GMO heirloom White Dutch clover is an upright perennial legume seeded as an annual cover crop for its thick, interwoven root system to break up tough soils while converting nitrogen from the atmosphere back into the soil. White Dutch clover is one of the best living mulches to fortify your garden and is often sown in between other irrigated crops. Despite being a proven year-round cover crop, White Dutch clover has also been traditionally grown for its medicinal and herbal properties, even supplemented for blood purification and prepared as an ointment used to treat gout. The clover plant itself is considered a survivalist plant because it is extremely dense in minerals and protein, along with sweet edible flowers.
