A biennial plant which can persist for several years due to its self-regenerating properties, and owing to its sweet smell and copious production of nectar it is highly attractive to insects, which in turn attract game birds and wildlife.
Sowing with kale will help to provide cover in the first year, with the tall, woody-stemmed clover taking over in the second year. Yellow blossom sweet clover can thrive in the poorest of soils and being leguminous and deep rooting it is invaluable for improving soil structure and fertility.
Pretty Wild Seeds are registered with the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) under number 7529, so you can have confidence in both our products and advice.

Seed of sweet clover is small and should be broadcast or drilled at a shallow depth (not more than a few mm). Sowing too deep will reduce the germination dramatically. The soil should be rolled after sowing to increase soil moisture contact with the seed.
March - May is the ideal time for sowing in the spring. Mid to late August is the best time for an autumn sowing. Establishment is less likely to be reliable if sowing extends too far into September.
Sweet clover does not take kindly to hard topping, so should be topped 10cm above the ground, to avoid damage to the plant crown. This may limit the options for weed control. The information on pest and disease tolerance for sweet clover is limited. Observations suggest that it is considerably more susceptible to sitona weevil and downy mildew than red or white clover.
