Discourages spreading weeds, protects and improves soil by preventing nutrients leaching away over winter and adds valuable organic material. Clovers fix nitrogen in the soil. Rye grass and white mustard improve soil structure.

Ready to dig in after 2-3 months after sowing.

The Mix is made up of:
15% Crimson Clover (Trifolium incarnatum)
20% Broad Leaf Clover (Trifolium pratense)
30% Westerwolths Rye Grass (Lolium multiflorum)
35% White Tilney Mustard (Sinapsis alba)

The incorporation of green plant tissue into the soil is an ancient practice known as ‘green manuring’. Green Manures are used to disrupt pest and disease life cycles, improve soil fertility and nutrient levels and suppress weeds.
Covers approx. 20sq.m (24sq. yards)


Some of the seed in our sale has a shorter sow by date and you may get packets stating sow by December 2024.   We can reassure you that all the seed is quality tested and 100% guaranteed until the end of the Sow by Date. 

In fact, our sow by dates are conservative, and if seed is stored well in a cool dry place they will almost certainly last significantly longer and still give good germination for a year or two more.
