I'll let you know... I just planted some samples of Imperial Whitetails' "No Plow" and "Sweet Spot." All you need to do is clear the ground with round up or weed eater and rake. Seed and walk over area or drive over it with atv so seed and soil have good contact. Check out their website. You can get samples for free, just pay shipping. I ordered the double sample pack and planted all of them tonight. Can't wait to see the results.

I think you mean secret spot, not sweet spot.

Sweet Spot will do well as a no plow when planted as you described also.

Default Sweetspot

This is Sweetspot hand thrown with 10-10-10 and drove over with ATV. 1 bag makes 1/4 acre, that is a lot of small plots.

I would ask Swarm, my response would be right now, leave work and go plant !! Swarm will know if it is to late or okay to plant.

Good Luck

Just go buy some rape seed or turnips. Oats will come up okay, depending on how much dirt they can get to.

I would tend to think it's too late to plant Sweet Spot but I'm all the way up in Iowa so maybe someone more local could weigh in and confirm my thoughts.

It does not get a whole lot of sun, more in the morning than anytime during the day.

xx2. If you can't get a 4 wheeler then get a 4 ft chain link fence and drag by hand(think about a baseball diamond drag.)
