About Organic Crimson Clover Cover Crop Garden Seeds
Like many legumes, non-GMO Organic crimson clover seeds are popularly grown as a cover crop broadcasted directly in early fall for spring tilling. For a traditional garden harvest or ornamental planting, sow 2-3 Organic crimson clover cover crop seeds ½" deep and 2-3" apart in fertile, loamy, and well-drained garden soil in full sun to partial shade. Because annual crimson clover is a restorative cover crop, it will thrive in difficult, challenging soils. Non-GMO Organic clover seeds germinate in 7-14 days, with no thinning required. Non-GMO Trifolium incarnatum is a cool-hardy crop with no serious pests or diseases. When grown as a seasonal cover crop, mow down heirloom crop once half the blooms have emerged, before crimson clover begins to seed. Springtime reseeding of clover will help minimize weeds in the garden and grow space. Non-GMO Organic crimson clover seed is popularly sown with ryegrass as both an effective companion plant and as nutritiously dense source of animal fodder.
Organic Crimson Clover Benefits
Non-GMO Organic crimson clover seeds are a quickly maturing cover crop traditionally planted in the fall and tilled back into the soil for spring nutrients, but can be sown nearly any time of year as a nitrogen-rich companion plant. Like other open-pollinated cover crops, one of the major advantages to heirloom clover is that it grows immediately in the spring and will not get heavy and bogged in spring moisture. And, like many other cover crops, non-GMO Organic crimson clover is known to replenish tired soils of their depleted nitrogen and nutrients, while improving soil tilth, structure, waterflow, and weed suppression. When not cultivated as a seasonal cover crop, annual crimson clover is an easy, low-growing ornamental crop grown for its charming 4-6" tall allium-like blooms.
