Clover

(Trifolium incarnatum) The use of clover as a pasture legume began in the U.S. as early as the mid-1800's. A favorite of pollinators, this herb is both functional and beautiful. Growing crimson clover is an excellent way to improve your soil. The plant has the ability to fix nitrogen. (Legumes can capture unavailable atomospheric nitrogen and convert it into usable nitrogen that feeds plants!) Seeds can be broadcast into cultivated soil and no thinning is required. In cold winter climates, it is best to sow the seeds of this cold-sensitive annual after all chance of frost has passed in spring. For mild winter climates, it is best to sow the seeds 6-8 weeks before first fall frost dates in fall. Sow in place, ¼ to ½ inch deep. Inoculating the seed with a nitrogen-fixing bacteria is recommended. Mow when flowers appear but before seeds form; this triggers the plant to die and release nitrogen into the soil.
