White Dutch Clover
Raw clover seed. Not coated or inoculated with anything.
aka Ladino Clover
White Dutch Clover designates a strain of white clover which is perennial. Used in lawns, as a ground cover, cover crop, for erosion control, and in pasture mixtures. Usually matures between 4 to 8 inches.
We use it to fix nitrogen in our gardens and to give the honey bees some much needed food. Many homeowners include White Dutch clover in their lawn seed mixture because clover sprouts fast and grows so dependably that it's a valuable aid in getting a new lawn started. Nodules on the roots fix nitrogen from the air. Actually, up to 1/3 the nitrogen your lawn needs can be obtained from White Dutch Clover! Grows vigorously even in poor clay subsoil around new home construction. If you want all the benefits of a cover crop but don't want to till early or mow, clover is your best bet.
Seeding rate for clover is 1/4 lb for a 1000 sq. ft or 6 to 8 lbs per acre.
We got these as ground cover for a field to hopefully take over from other tall grasses. We barely prepped the soil and threw them out pretty randomly but they still came up over the next couple weeks (even in late October). I don’t have a green thumb and didn’t do any extra watering or work. 10/10 for persistence
The package arrived quickly and included instructions. White clover seeds are tiny, so I mixed them with sand and sowed them in bare spots in my lawn. They germinated within a couple weeks and developed three leaves by week 4. The bees are going to love me. The rabbits already do.
Received my beautiful seeds in a timely manner. Have not used them yet.
We bought a house where the lawn had clearly not been cared for. The back was mostly weeds. We purchased this seed and overseeded with both clover and grass seed. This clover took off and has filled in wonderfully. I'm back to purchase more to fill in some bare spots. Will certainly encourage others to buy.
I’ve planted two batches of seeds with great success. The order arrived in a timely manner and the packaging was excellent. My patchy lawn is starting to fill in nicely.
