CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Bees in Clover Organic is a blend of four certified organic clover varieties with Annual Ryegrass included as a nurse crop that will protect the seeds and soil until the clovers emerge. Use this versatile and attractive cover crop to fix nitrogen, suppress weeds, protect against soil erosion, create habitat, and feed bees and other pollinators. The deep roots of this blend loosen hard, compacted soil resulting in improved water absorption and retention and better nutrient retention. It's low maintenance and can be mowed twice a year to encourage re-flowering. And it stands up to foot traffic. This blend includes Klondike Ladino Clover, Medium Red Clover, Alsike Clover, Crimson Clover, and Annual Ryegrass — all certified organic seeds.
