Description

Micro White Clover Trifolium repens

This resilient perennial wildflower has pinkish-white rounded flower heads and small attractive trifoliate leaves, and can be easily incorporated into an existing lawn.

Micro white clover is drought-resistant and bee-friendly and, due to its nitrogen-fixing qualities, it will actually fertilise your existing lawn grass and improve the soil condition.  It is very effective when used as a green manure to improve soil fertility and structure.

Create a low-maintenance lawn with micro white clover which can be mowed very infrequently letting the plants flower to benefit wildlife. If you don't want flowers, simply mow the clover lawn before the plants bloom. Micro white clover tolerates low mowing heights.

Clover grows in dense clumps and is great at outcompeting weeds.

Sow at 1.5 grams per square metre if sowing into existing sward; 10 grams per square metre if sowing onto bare seedbed.

Sow:

April through to September.

Growing time

3-18 months.

Soil Type:

Good Loam or Sandy Soil.

 

 

How to establish

Prepare digging soil over and removing weeds. Tread the soil, sow the seeds by broadcasting. Rake the soil and then water well. If there are dry periods you may need to water until the green manure is established.

Maintenance

Before flowering the green manure should be cut down when the stems are soft as they decompose quicker. They should be dug into the soil by turning over into the top 15cms. Worms will pull down the organic matter.
