Rivendell White Clover - Coated
Trifolium repens Perennial legume. Up to 9 inch. Small-leafed perennial clover establishes quickly and withstands traffic and close mowing. More vigorous and slightly taller than Rivendell White Clover. Seed early at 5–10#/acre, ¼ pound per 1000 square feet.
As cover crop:
At Treble Ridge we used to seed white clover between rows of plastic mulch in our market gardens. A weekly spin on the riding lawn mower keeps the clover under control and discourages annual weeds, practically eliminating the need to weed or spread mulch while keeping all the soil covered and protected from rain and wind erosion.
As perennial pasture:
White clover spreads via rhizomes, giving it better tolerance to close grazing than red clover. Productive during cooler seasons when forage quality of grasses is often lower. Higher protein and better digestibility than red clover.
Seed coated with Summit Seed Coatings Apex Green Hydroloc, an OMRI-Listed coating.
- Comes by the pound and in pre-packaged 50 pound bags.
