Winter Oats

Regular price $3.99

Winter Oat (Avena sativa) is a fast-maturing cool weather cover crop that reduces soil erosion, holds nitrogen, and suppresses weeds. In spring, stems and leaves of winter killed Oats create a rich mulch that continues to suppress weeds. Or crop residue can be tilled into the soil to add organic matter at any time.

Winter-hardy and drought-tolerant cover crops can help cover the soil of your home garden beds during the off season. We've included enough seed in one packet to cover an 8' x 4' garden bed. Improving soil health through cover crop planting is an easy and low cost way of maintaining your garden from year to year. Large, premium seed packets give instructions on how to grow and when to plant outdoors
