Imperial Clover and Tall Tine Tubers should be planted in a prepared seedbed. Imperial No Plow can be planted either in a prepared seedbed, or just with enough existing vegetation removed for the seed to fall into contact with the soil.
For best results and longest life, Imperial Clover should be mowed a few times in the Spring, and grass and weeds should be kept under control by mowing and, in some cases, the use of selective herbicides.
Step 2 – Planting Dates: The recommended planting dates for your area are shown on the back of the product bag you have selected.
Step 3 – How to Prepare the Seedbed and Plant:
- Add 3 bags of Southern States Solu-Lime® to ½ acre seedbed
- Disk or rototill seedbed**
- Add 2 bags of Southern States Wildlife Plot Starter Fertilizer
- Smooth seedbed with weighted drag or cultipacker**
- Broadcast ½ acre bag of Imperial Clover, Tall Tine Tubers or Imperial No Plow
- Do not cover seed
**If you will be planting Imperial No Plow, steps 2 and 4 are optional. Imperial No Plow can be planted either in a prepared seedbed, or just with enough existing vegetation removed for the seed to fall into contact with the soil. See back of product bag for additional planting details.
