(Trifolium pratense) (biennial) Rapid-growing green manure crop to 10-18 in. The flowers can be harvested for tea. Sow in the spring or fall for turndown to incorporate organic nitrogen into the soil. Sow in the aisles between taller crops to deter weeds. Buckwheat may be used as a nurse crop to aide germination of clover in summer heat. The clover will grow slowly under the buckwheat until fall frost kills the buckwheat and allows the clover to establish quickly. This method eliminates Fall tilling. ¼ lb sows 500 sq. ft.
