Vineyard Fertility Building Mix

Ref: MIXVINF

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.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. 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.The benefit of these annual species is that they can be moved or mulched to terminate the mix in the autumn.
