Rivendell White Clover
Rivendell White Clover OG Trifolium repens 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, ½# per 1000 sq ft. Certified organic.

As cover crop: At Treble Ridge we 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.

Seed coated with Apex™ Green, an OMRI-listed coating. Click here for OMRI certificate.

Additional Information

Clover

Clover is versatile, performs well in Maine’s cool humid climate and acidic soils, fixes atmospheric nitrogen, and attracts pollinators—what more could you ask for? The taller red clovers are better hay plants, as they have a more erect habit and greater biomass, and they dry more easily. No matter what kind of clover you choose, be sure to plant plenty to increase your chances of finding those lucky four-lobed specimens: botanists estimate that 1 in 10,000 clover leaves exhibit this trait! Clover may be planted from late winter through early fall. Seedlings are slow to establish and will benefit from a nurse crop of oats. Trifolium spp. (except Yellow Sweet Clover, which is Melilotus officinalis)

Farm Seed

Unless otherwise noted, our legume seed is sold “raw”: it has not been inoculated with the appropriate bacteria in a process called rhizocoating.

Organic Seed

We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
All our seed is untreated.

Organically grown seed is labeled OG.
The label ECO after the variety name describes non-certified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
