Vineyard Fertility Building Mix
This mixture combines several annual clovers, they will grow away quickly in warm spring soils, normally flowering 2-3 months after sowing (end of April onwards). These leguminous plants will start to fix nitrogen and build soil fertility after 8-10 weeks and grow from May until September. br>This mixture can either be sown during the development phase of the vineyard, to prove a fertility boost to tired soils which may have been over worked and neglected in the past. br>This mix can also provide a great resource for bees and other benifical pollinators when planted in small areas each spring, once the vineyard has been created. br>The benefit of these annual species is that they can be moved or mulched to terminate the mix in the autumn.
