Cover Crop: Sea of Cover

Organicraft’s Sea of Cover is a variable seasonal mix of legumes and wild grasses, along with others like millet and sorghum, which is used as green manure and a living mulch cover crop. Together, these fix nitrogen, create a humic layer, attract insects and provide a banquet of flavours for earthworms.

Simply sprinkle on the ground, cover with mulch and keep moist. Cut when a few inches high and leave to compost. Highly recommended for lazy gardeners.
