If mowed just as blooming commences, the plants die, leaving a natural mulch which can be left as-is for no-till planting, or incorporated for soil improvement. Perennial if allowed to set seed. Hardy. 1/4 lb

What are the pros?
What are the cons?
I planted with my corn and it pulled some of the stalks over. I would do it again though. Corn germinated too slowly and vetch took right off. I try to replace some nitrogen while the corn is growing. This vetch is amazing. It is up over my head.

I planted some for the first time this year with great results and I need more! I have the hardiest weeds imaginable. I swear some grow to 10 feet high. I've been trying to battled them naturally and hairy vetch was very effective in areas where I did not mow it before it bloomed. I planted around some newly planted Sugar Maple Trees. I also planted some trees without it as a control. Weeds were prolific without the Hairy Vetch. I want to plant it everywhere and try to replace my grass between rows in the garden.
