$1.95 $3.90

Red clover seeds are an important forage legume grown widely in the temperate regions throughout the U.S. extending from the Northeast through the Midwest to eastern North and South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas and into the upper South. Red clover is becoming increasingly important in the Deep South where it is used as a winter annual. It is also grown in many areas from bulk clover seeds in the Pacific Northwest and other regions of the U.S. It is considered to be a short-lived perennial clover, meaning it typically lasts 3 - 5 years; however, it will often persist beyond this due to self-seeding.

•American grown seeds

Planting Instructions:
Red clover can tolerate poor soils and does best in well-draining soil as long as it’s in part sun/part shade. Moderate watering conditions are usually best, but red clover can survive droughts if its taproot is established. Start outdoors after the last frost, making small indention in the soil for the seeds (1/4-inch-deep) and lightly covering the seeds with soil. Make sure the seeds stay warm and damp for them to germinate, which usually takes a week. Once established, red clover is hardy and will grow with moderate water and sunlight and is relatively tolerant of drought and other conditions.

***Our Red clover seed has been coated with an inoculant for better establishment. Nitrogen fixation is a one of the key values found in legumes and can only occur with the proper inoculation.
