CLOVER YELLOW SWEET 3 LB

$12.99

Yellow Sweet Clover is a favorite of honey bees and beekeepers alike. Used to improve honey production, the bright, yellow flowers are attractive to bees and the nectar they collect results in a flavorful honey. Yellow sweet clover can also be utilized as forage, especially in pasture mixtures once animals become accustomed to the bitter taste. It is a biennial legume which means the plant is primarily vegetative during its seeding year and flowers during its second year of growth developing flowering stalks up to 6 feet high. The taproot of the mature plant can break through hard pan soil layers and greatly improve soil tilth. Plant at a rate of 3-8 lbs./A in mixtures or 6-15 lbs./A in pure stands.
