Use Klondike Ladino clover as a nitrogen fixing cover crop, or as a long term ground cover, either on its own, or in combination with grasses. It tolerates wet conditions and foot traffic. It reduces soil compaction and improves soil health. Continue reading below for tips on how to grow Klondike Ladino clover from seed.
Exposure: Full sun to partial shade
Plant any time between the last frost date and early autumn. Hardy to Zone 4: -34°C (-29°F).
Sow seeds no deeper than 5mm (¼").
For nitrogen fixation, allow the plants to reach flowering stage. Clover spreads by underground runners that call for more thorough tillage in the spring. A simple garden fork works well for this purpose. Allow two weeks for this clover to break down in the soil before planting the next crop.
