Product Details

Our special blend of winter rye and hairy vetch does everything you want a fall-to-spring cover crop to do! The rye sprouts and grows quickly to provide good erosion control. It also tends to suppress germination of many annual weeds. The hairy vetch adds valuable nitrogen to the soil and attracts beneficial insects. The blend is especially pretty in the spring garden when the vetch climbs up the tall rye stems to show off its pretty flowers. Sow 2 1/2 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. 1 1/2 lbs.

  • Zones: 3 - 9
  • Spacing: 1.5 lb covers 600 sq ft
  • Sun/Shade: Full sun
  • Soil Preference: Till soil so that after seed is sown, it can be raked into the top 1/4 inch of finely worked soil. (A leaf rake works better for this purpose than a garden rake, but either will do.) Watering will hasten germination.
  • Seed Counts: 1.5 #
  • Comments: Our special all-purpose mixture of winter rye and hairy vetch does everything you want a winter cover crop to do!
