Have any of you guys tried maintaining a stand of pure clover over several years? I'm thinking about trying to turn one of my small 1/4 acre plots into perennial clover.


If you can't laugh at yourself, give me a call. I'll gladly laugh at you.

Yes. I planted the Imperial Whitetail brand clover and it did very well. They advertise that it lasts 5 years from a single planting and mine lasted 6 years before thinning out. I little pricer than other brands, but I feel that it's worth it.

I had 2 that lasted 4 to 5 years, one did quite well the other never got over very much height as the turkey kept it mowed very close to the ground.

Mainstream news might be fun to watch

I've planted Alyce clover the last couple of years with my cowpeas. It has not came up well either time, few little patches. The following year a few pieces pop up in the spring, but not much.

WIth that said, not sure the deer aren't getting on it and I never see much of it.


Thanks, Billy

I planted justin seed fall deer mix with clover this pst year, and the clover came up nicely. I planted it kind of all over and last weekend i noticed some areas that crimson clover was starting to flower, but the plots where there was heavy activity there were sparse to no flowers coming up. I assume its because the deer were keeping the clover pretty low. I know last summer i had one plot thick with clover that did eventually flower....so with heavy deer use you may not get much height and it may not “follow the instructions” as much. Just my 2cents.
