2018 Clover Thread, The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Thread starter #21
the clover we planted has toped out with red buds.the deer don't seem to be using it as much now do we need to cut it.its our first year with a good clover plot and I am not sure what to do
Canuck has given you some great advice!!

But a perennial white clover like Durana or Imperial Whitetail Institute, or Regal, is hard to beat!
Your clover looks great Canuck. :cool:

I’m looking at taking a 1/4 acre plot we have and making it into a perennial clover plot. I have a few questions:

1. Is fall or spring better plant time?

2. The plot is N/S oriented. Will this be detrimental due to lack of sun?

3. Soil is sandy/ sandy loam soil next to planted pines, that is usually fairly shaded. Would I be wasting time due to soil type and shade?

I’m looking forward to see how everyone’s clover does throughout the summer!

For perennial clover plant in fall along with a grain as a nurse crop. Partial shade is ok. Make sure you have your ph balance right. If you haven’t done a soil test then do so now and amend according to analysis ASAP on the line requirement so you will have several months for lime to start working it’s magic.

Took this pic saturday morning from the south end of our largest plot. The perimeter of this plot is planted in ladino and durana clover.

Near ground level it looks like this.

Best poor man's food plot you can plant. And with a little maintenance it will be producing clover like this 3 or 4 years later. Come fall...just overseed it with your favorite grain and your good to go!

I surrounded mine with plums, crabapple, Apple, sawtooth oak, muscadine, blueberrys and Chinese chestnut, got some fruit last season but still a few years from having good crops yet but having fun trying to create a good buffet for them

Great plan to have something for them to eat 12 months of the year.

The clover is still feeding lots of deer.
