Grains and Cover Crops


Our selection of cover crop and grain seeds includes many different plant species. Whether grown for soil improvement (hairy vetch, winter peas, rape), or to harvest for use as grain (rice, millet, quinoa, flax, chuffa),in the home garden they tend to be sown on a larger scale than many vegetable types. Some crops, like buckwheat or sesame, are used both ways!
