Crimson clover seed, organic
A green manure is a crop which is sown with the aim of nourishing and protecting the soil. Summer sown varieties give the soil a healing rest while autumn-sown varieties feed the soil, improve soil structure and reduce erosion. Crimson clover fixes nitrogen, thus feeding the soil, and has masses of red flowers in summer which attract bees and butterflies. Sow April to August. Certified organic seed. Organic certification IE-ORG-03 250 gms packet, sufficient for c. 70-80 sq m.
