Finally!!! Clover!!!!
« on: May 03, 2017, 12:00:38 PM »
Bugfixer and I have been trying to get clover growing on 4 small plots for 2 years. we planted last spring and the excessive rain drowned out the small shoots. we replanted in May and the summer drought killed it again. We tilled them all again and sprayed roundup on them last fall. some clover came up but not a ton because the deer were mowing it down.

The first week of March, we replanted all 4 plots in clover and the rain and sun hit it just right. We came back in late April and sprayed arrest and slay on them to kill the grass and broadleaf. I checked on one of them yesterday and the grass is dying and the clover is 6 to 8 inches high!

We may finally get the clover established....
