Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Frosty Berseem Clover
Frosty Berseem Clover (60 days)
Berseem Clover is a summer annual which is an excellent cover crop well suited to winter-kill situations. Adding up to 8 tons of forage per acre if watered properly, it can fix from 125-200 pounds of nitrogen per acre. As a green manure, Berseem adds a ton of biomass to the soil - not only accumulating Nitrogen, but adding over 3,500 pounds per acre of organic matter to the soil each year. It can be used as a companion crop if planted with Oats or hay, and is a fast growing forage for your animals - with up to 25% protein, it is better than crimson clover or alfalfa.
My order came complete and on time. Since I just broadcasted it one month ago, it's not yet produced a stand. I'm hopeful it will grow very well with my brome grass.
The staff at SSC was very helpful and the company is one of the few that carry OMRI certified Frosty Berseem. I'm very excited about this clover since it high protein and is nitro-fixing without fungus problems or causing bloat in my horses.
