Rivendell White Clover - OrganicTrifolium repens Perennial legume. Up to 9". Small-leafed perennial clover establishes quickly and withstands traffic and close mowing. More vigorous and slightly taller than Dutch White Clover. Seed early at 5–10#/acre, ¼# per 1000 sq ft.
As cover crop: At Treble Ridge we used to seed white clover between rows of plastic mulch in our market gardens. A weekly spin on the riding lawn mower keeps the clover under control and discourages annual weeds, practically eliminating the need to weed or spread mulch while keeping all the soil covered and protected from rain and wind erosion.
As perennial pasture: White clover spreads via rhizomes, giving it better tolerance to close grazing than red clover. Productive during cooler seasons when forage quality of grasses is often lower. Higher protein and better digestibility than red clover.
