Detailed Product Info

Low-growing White Clover is a trooper. Use it to establish patches of lawn or green paths that do not spread aggressively into neighboring garden beds and do not require much mowing. It holds up to plenty of traffic, but note that it is not as resilient to heavy use as grass. But, unlike grass, it is a nitrogen-fixing workhorse, helping to create nutrition that is accessible to plants growing in beds along path and lawn edges.
Sow nearly anytime, but spring and late summer are best.

Growing Instructions

Sow anytime of year by broadcasting shallowly into prepared bare soil. Rake in gently and keep watered until emergence. Do not fertilize heavily; white clover is a rugged plant that prefers moderate soils and fixes its own nitrogen. Allow plants to reach 6 inches in height before permitting moderate foot traffic.
