Like many other cover crops, non-GMO crimson clover is known to replenish tired soils of their depleted nitrogen and nutrients, while improving soil tilth, structure, waterflow, and weed suppression.

70-90 Days. Trifolium incarnatum. Cover Crop. Non-GMO. Annual. Heirloom crimson clover seeds are an ideal annual garden companion and cover crop for plants and soils deficient in nitrogen. Non-GMO crimson clover seeds produce a clean and tidy, low-growing 6-12" tall heirloom cover crop traditionally intercropped through the garden to increase nitrogen in the soil, while also increasing soil tilth and weed suppression. Clover is one of the most effective weed suppressants, able to be tilled back into the soil as a "green manure" or kept for its crimson red allium-like blooms. Wholesale seeds and bulk sizes available. ~5,200 seeds/ounce.

About Crimson Clover Cover Crop Garden Seeds

Like many legumes, non-GMO 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 heirloom 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 crimson clover is a restorative cover crop, it will thrive in difficult, challenging soils. Non-GMO 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 Crimson Clover seed is popularly sown with ryegrass as both an effective companion plant and as nutritiously dense source of animal fodder.
