Green Manure Buckwheat Organic

Green Manure Buckwheat Organic is a short term fast growing summer green manure Buckwheat. It germinates in 3-5 days and produces a thick canopy of foliage that smoothers most other weeds. The roots are deep extracting nutrients. The large amount of foliage will add valuable organic matter to improve soil structure. Cut down before flowering 60-90 days from sowing and dig in. Alternatively it is not frost hardy and the first frosts will kill the plants. The plants do produce chemicals which temporarily inhibit other plants seeds from germinating in the same location.  Do not sow mall seeded varieties such as carrot until 30 days after the crop has been dug in. Best sown after all danger of frost has passed in spring, through summer to not within 60 days of likely frosts in your area in autumn. Sowing rate 10gm per square metre.
