Product Description

Our microclover can help you have a green lawn in every meaning of the word.  Adding clover to your lawn will keep it greener during the summer with less water than your neighbors use, reduce fertilizer use, and eliminate the need for chemical weed killers because over time the clover will thicken up and crowd out weeds like dandelions.  

 How does Microclover Prevent Weeds?

You've heard that you should mow your grass tall to prevent weeds right?  One of the reasons that works is because the taller your grass is, the more it shades the soil.  If the soil is shaded, weed seeds have difficulty getting the sunlight they need to get established.  Well, what do you think is better at shading the soil - a skinny vertical blade of grass or a nice umbrella like clover leaf?  You guessed it, the clover leaf.  As a bonus, if you have microclover in your lawn, you can keep it a little bit shorter and still get excellent weed suppression.  Visit whygoodnature.com/microclover for more information. 

Overseeding Your Lawn with Microclover:

Our microclover has a special coating that helps it get established and providing nitrogen to fertilize your lawn 6 - 9 months sooner than clover that isn't coated and inoculated with our special seed starter.  

Broadcasting microclover works much better than broadcasting regular grass seed.  Start by determining the square footage of the area you have to cover (www.findlotsize.com or just measure it out).  1 lb. of our microclover will cover 600 square feet.  If you'd like to see the clover establish more quickly you can spread it twice as heavy so that 1lb only covers 300 square feet.  Set your spreader on the lowest setting and cover the lawn once.  Repeat until you've spread the desired amount of seed.  

Starting a New Lawn with Microclover:

We don't recommend seeding microclover alone, it's best used along with grass.  If you're seeding a lawn from scratch (there is no grass there) we recommend seeding it along with our Tuff Turf for a low maintenance and attractive lawn.  You can seed the lawn normally with Tuff Turf at 10 lbs. / 1000 s.f. and then spread the microclover separately at 2 lbs. / 1000 s.f. 

Will it work in my area? 

If they do see regular clover growing then the microclover should work. Also you can tell people that we have sold the microclover to people all over the country (California, Florida, Texas, and NY) and in Canada and it seems to perform in all these climates.

Does it flower?

It flowers a lot less than Dutch White Clover. It does flower a little more in its second year, but overall it probably flowers about 90% less than regular white clover.

How big is it and/or how tall does it get? 

It is really about the size of white clover, but smaller than red hop clover. It can get about 6 to 8 inches tall on its own. In a lawn it gets mowed down, but if it is just microclover it can get a little taller.

Can I just plant microclover without grass?

The short answer is yes. We originally did not recommend this but some clients have done this with success. One I know of in New York and one in California. In general we suggest mixing it with grass for best results because the clover will recede over the winter and you might have mud.

Do you need to fertilize microclover?

Not really. It is mostly self-fertilizing. We do recommend fertilizing your lawn if it is mixed in with microclover to help the grass stay competitive with the microclover.

How do I prep the soil?

If you have grass already mow it real short and scratch the area up some ( not too much is needed) Broadcast the seed  ( NOTE : THE SEED IS TEENY TINY AND IS PROBABLY BEST SPREAD BY HAND OR BY PUTTING YOUR SPREADER ON ITS SMALLEST OPENING)

The seed needs daily (or twice daily if real hot and dry) watering. Compost or straw is OK - but typically not necessary for the seed to germinate.

How long does the seed last?

If kept dry the seed will last past the sell by date. This is on the label and usually 12 to 18 months after tested.

Will the microclover takeover my lawn?

The microclover in general is more aggressive than grass and we therefore recommend still doing some fertilizer to help the grass stay competitive.

  1. Quality seeds and quick sprouting 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2021

    I ordered microclover seeds for a lawn renovation project, after reading up on the benefits of adding microclover to the grass.

    Ten days after planting there are plenty little seedlings peeking through the soil. They came through even before the new grass.
    I am ordering another packet to spread some more.

  2. Sprouts quickly, grows well 5 Star Review

  3. Micro clover 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2021

    we live in Arizona where the temperatures get to 100 degrees plus. We have planted the micro clover in a shaded area where the grass will not grow. and we are very happy with the results so far. It has only ben 10 days since we planted the clover and it is starting to pop up all over the area that we planted. so far we are very happy with the results.

  4. Great growth 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2020

    Sowed the seed using an old tin shaker (previously used to shake sugar and cinnamon on toast), which worked very well. Thatched our lawn before applying seed. Misted and next day used pulsed sprinkler to water it. Followed by several days of hot, humid weather with continued daily watering until we had heavy rain. Seed apparently floated down small incline toward the sidewalk. Now have heavy growth in clumps. Seed sprouted very well, just nature’s distribution left something to be desired.

  5. Just what I wanted! 5 Star Review

    I am trying to add more clover to my yard, this product works well and grows fast!

  6. Green all Summer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2019

    I sowed microseed in early spring and it took easily, even in heavily shaded areas of my yard. And while the grass yellowed the clover did not. I have a very big back yard and will sow more next spring. Great stuff!

    1 lb went a long way.

  9. microclover in Minnesota 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2019

    Slow but sure. A few days after seeding, sprouts appeared in warmer places close to cement like the curb, but nothing appeared elsewhere for about a week and then just tiny green dots for a good while that I thought might be weeds. This was during 40 to 65 degree weather. Gradually the clover has appeared and is growing thick and lush. Have appreciated email support during the process from Dan N. Watered 2/day for a week, then daily for a couple of weeks, now alternate days.

  10. Truly Micro 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2019

    Easy to plant, slow growth but much better than turf grass. Added bonus restores soil.
