Growing Calendar for Green Manure Seeds - Red Clover

Green Manure Red Clover is a deep rooted winter hardy, bushy plant which can be grown for a quick crop and dug in or can be left for up to two years. Keep cutting to encourage new growth.
Loved by bees and beneficial insects if allowed to flower. Nitrogen fixer useful for sandy soils, can be over-wintered.
Sow April – August.
As already mentioned, the clover is already sprouting after a few days and makes excellent ground cover under runner beans, reducing weeds and adding nitrogen.
I can't wait to use these, as soon as the weather is warmer (I live in the north east) I will be scattering them around my apple trees, I've been told they attract bees and this will attract the bees to visit the blossom on my trees.
Good as a soil improving green manure and as a food source for bees.
