Weed Suppressing Green Manure Seeds

Buckwheat is a quick growing green manure ideal for covering the soil in summer/autumn. Attractive to beneficial insects in addition to its green manuring value.

 

Germinates in 3 or 4 days and produces a dense canopy of foliage that soon smothers and out competes weeds. Rapidy recomposes to improve soil structure and to add valuable organic matter. Best to dig in while young before tough woody stems are formed as this takes longer to break down. Make sure to dig in before it goes to seed as it re seeds very easily and can become a bit of a pest.

Clear area of weeds especially perennials, rake soil to a fine tilth. Broadcast sow seed and rake in to a depth of 1cm, can also be sown in rows 20cm apart. Firm soil and gently water. Keep moist until seed has germinated.

Grows well on poor soils and is tolerant of acidic conditions.

A packet will cover 20 square metres. - 125g per pack
