Trifolium repens var. Pipolina. More and more home owners are seeing the advantages of replacing lawn areas by incorporating micro clover seed. 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 no further fertilizer whatsoever. Because clover grows so densely, it crowds out weeds, and prevents weed seeds from becoming established.

Contrary to what its name implies, Micro Clover is not simply a tiny version of standard clover. This variety demonstrates “vegetative elasticity,” which means that in response to repeated mowing, its growth form changes over time.

When micro clover is mowed, its leaves grow tiny and numerous, with fewer flowers than conventional clovers. It can be mowed shorter than typical lawn grasses, and it’s tough enough for children and pets to play on. Studies show that it also becomes established faster than grass seeds.

For home owners whose lawns have been ruined by the predators of chafer beetle larvae, there is hope with micro clover! Eliminate the lawn altogether, and plant thickly with micro clover seeds. Adult chafer beetles are not attracted to legumes, and will go elsewhere to lay their eggs.

When grass is 5-8cm (2-3″) high, cut for the first time. Trim lightly and gradually lower blades to an ideal cutting height of 25mm (1″). Micro clover supplies 4.88g N/m² (1 lb Nitrogen/1000 square feet) per year.

Sow microclover seeds between the period two weeks prior to your last frost date, and 4 weeks prior to your first average frost date. For the BC Lower Mainland, that is approximately March 15 to October 5.

This seed is pelleted for easier distribution — the seeds can be seen more easily on the soil.

Overseeding an Established Lawn:
50g for 1,000 square feet
250g for 5,000 square feet
500g for 10,000 square feet
2.5kg for 50,000 square feet (one acre)

Sowing Rate with No Grass (recommended):
50g for 100 square feet
250g for 500 square feet
500g for 1,000 square feet
2.5kg for 5,000 square feet

If starting a lawn from from scratch use 5% Micro Clover of the total weight of the grass seed being sown. I.E. If seeding 1kg of grass, seed use 50g of Micro Clover in the mix.

All rates above are recommended for machine spreading. If spreading seeds by hand, add 25% to 50% more seeds. It is wise to withhold some seeds for filling in any bald areas that appear.
