Sow in late summer or very early fall to see full life cycle of this plant, which involves winter dormancy and late spring flowering. Or, sow in early spring, but be prepared to turn in crop before it matures and flowers. Broadcast at a volume that allows seed to land at roughly 3 inch by 3 inch spacing. Crimson clover is winter hardy to zone 5/6 (winter low about -10F / -23C), and it does not do well in the heat of summer; turn in spring-sown crops when hot weather is about to settle in.
