This mix changes throughout the season based on inventory, but is always a highly diverse mix of cool and warm season grasses, brassicas, broadleaves, and legumes.

    Cover crop and wildlife planting

    Planted High Diversity Mix last week in April here in Eastern New Mexico on a 1 acer plot for cover and wildlife plot. I have some morning glory to deal with so I double drilled it and irrigated it with about 1inch of water and have received over and inch of rain on it. this stuff is beautiful. I well plant it again lol but will not double drill it again my bad .
    I have already noted deer coming in and Quail
    I hope to get the local NRCS employees come out and see what they can identify. I think everything I planted is coming up
    Regards

    This is the mix I recommend to friends

    I have a small city lawn with a big tree in the center. Grass struggled to grow. About 6 weeks before the first frost, I planted the high diversity mix by hand hammering holes in the lawn and filling them with seeds. The nitro radish, forage pea and buckwheat were the most successful of the mix. Yesterday, I went to mow my lawn for the first time this year, and there are solid patches of rich green clover everywhere I planted. It's the reason I came to write this review.
    I also combined this mix with the milpa mix on a rural acre of lawn. I broadcasted the seeds on scraped, but untilled, soil and lawn grass. I did not have much success using this method. However, everywhere there was a nitro radish, there was other cover crops thriving right next to it.
    I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because, based on the product flyer, I was expecting a greater variety of crops than what was on the bag label. But I think its a great product from a great company.

    Quality Mix

    This mix came up quickly, I was presently surprised. We took a old overgrown weedy field and this was the second plot ever planted in it. I added some plot boost at the start that see,Ed to help as well. Mix came up with a lot of sorghum and clover, has turnips and radishes below. Also I love the red clover that mixes in. We left it all fall and then mowed path through it during gun season. Really holds the deer. I ended up shooting a really nice nine point in the plot that as soon as he hit the edge of it he ate the tops off one of the sorghums. Has a ton of mass to add to the soil. Curious to see if any of the clovers come back up in the spring.
