We have an acre plot frost-seeded with clover. I want a rye cover for it. But I want to be sure to seed the rye when it's warm enough to begin germination immediately... .otherwise I'll be broadcasting turkey food.
When do you think I should broadcast my rye seed ??
No, cereal grains are often planted as a nurse crop with clover (oats, barley, rye - most often oats I think). The extra crop seedlings help keep the weeds at bay until the clover can get a grasp on the plot. In addition, the roots left behind by the rye will add great organic matter to the soil and help retain water for the clover.
