Micro Clover Seed Pelleted

Product Details

Trifolium repens var. Pipolina. More and more home owners are seeing the advantages of supplementing grass lawns with Micro Clover, or seeding Micro Clover in damaged patches of their lawns where soil is exposed.

As a legume, Micro Clover fixes atmospheric nitrogen in nodes along its roots. This directly benefits grasses by fertilizing the soil naturally. Healthier grasses maintain a richer colour for longer in the season, and require less water and fertilizer. Clover grows densely so it crowds out weeds, and prevents weed seeds from becoming established. It is also a good option for homeowners whose lawns have been infested by European chafer beetles. Adult chafer beetles are not attracted to legumes and will go elsewhere to lay their eggs.

Contrary to what its name implies, Micro Clover is not simply a tiny version of standard clover. When Micro Clover is mowed, its leaves grow smaller and more numerous, with fewer flowers than conventional clovers. It becomes established more quickly and can be mowed shorter than typical lawn grasses. It will also stand up to foot (and pet) traffic. Once established, Micro Clover is more drought tolerant than grasses and require less frequent watering.

If starting a lawn from scratch, use 5% Micro Clover of the total weight of the grass seed being sown.

All About Micro Clover Seed Pelleted

Zone: Micro Clover is hardy to Zone 3.

Timing

Timing
Sow Micro clover seeds between the period two weeks prior to your last frost date, and four weeks prior to your first average frost date.Try to avoid planting during prolonged hot weather.

Starting

Starting
Sow at a rate of approximately 500g (1.1 lb) per 1,000 square feet. Scatter seeds densely and gently rake them in to a depth no more than 5-10mm (1/8-1/4”). Seed at a higher rate to ensure fuller coverage. Withhold 15-20% of seeds for filling in any bald areas later. Water newly seeded areas regularly until the seedlings take root. Over-seeding existing lawn may not work, as the seeds need to be in contact with moist soil in order to germinate. 

Growing

Growing

Establishing a “Lawn Solution” lawn may take more than one season. Mow and water as required. Clover goes dormant over winter and re-grows in spring. When Micro Clover is mowed, its leaves grow smaller and more numerous, with fewer flowers than conventional clovers. It can be mowed shorter than typical lawn grasses, and it’s tough enough for child play and pets. It also becomes established faster than grass seeds. Adult chafer beetles are not attracted to legumes, and will go elsewhere to lay their eggs.

How to Grow Micro Clover

Step 1

Timing

Sow Micro clover seeds between the period two weeks prior to your last frost date, and four weeks prior to your first average frost date. Try to avoid planting during prolonged hot weather.

Step 2

Starting

Sow at a rate of approximately 500g (1.1 lb) per 1,000 square feet. Scatter seeds densely and gently rake them into soil at a depth of no more than 5-10mm (1/8-1/4”). Seed at a higher rate to ensure fuller coverage. Withhold 15-20% of seeds for filling in any bald areas later. Water newly seeded areas regularly until the seedlings take root.

To replace a lawn, seed bare soil, with no turf present. To incorporate on top of an existing lawn, cut grass short to expose as much soil as possible. Spread a thin layer of compost, seed densely into the compost and rake in or use roller to press seeds in to ensure contact with soil. For best results, remove thatch before sowing.

Step 3

Growing

Establishing a “Lawn Solution” lawn may take more than one season. Mow and water as required. Clover goes dormant over winter and re-grows in spring.
