Cover Crop Mix
Cover Crop Mix is designed to create more ‘live roots’ in your growing media. It contains an equal blend of valuable barley, wheat, oat, rye and crimson clover seeds. This mix creates roots and in turn the life within the soil is being fed by the fluid that drains into the soil. This will then feed the microbes living within the soil. Furthermore, this addition of new roots will cause your plant growing in the pot to enhance their growth, in an attempt to out-compete the cover crops. These grains also encourage beneficial fungi to grow, such as mycorrhizae, which facilitates complete root and plant health.
How to use it
With Cover Crop Mix we recommend it is added to a mulch layer. This will ensure a more complete and assorted range of genera is present in your soil. Our Crop mix comes in 100g pouches which equates to the ideal amount for 1 x 68L pot or a 45L of Eco Life Soil. When using cover crop mix, simply sprinkle it over the top of your pot, once you have planted out and cover this layer with mulch, this can be compost, dry grass clippings, hay, straw etc. As the seeds sprout and begin to grow, then can then be ‘chopped and dropped, to become part of the mulch as it is slowly broken down.
