How to grow clover
Sow clover seed at 1-2g per square metre by scattering on the surface of your soil, raking lightly then tamping (pressing) down to get rid of any air pockets.
Clover is usually quick-growing and thrives in low-fertility soil. Cut back to stimulate new growth before it reaches 30cm tall or earlier if it's weedy.
Incorporating clover into your soil
Cut or mow clover before digging it in four weeks before the soil is needed, or overwinter after the frost has killed the leaves.
Crimson clover will die after flowering unlike red clover. Both types offer similar benefits to your soil.
