Hairy Vetch (Vicia villosa) is a winter-hardy (to 10° F) and drought-tolerant cover crop that works well on sandy or clay soils. This plant is a legume that fixes large amounts of nitrogen from the air and provides excellent spring weed suppression and erosion control. Works well in tandem with winter rye or winter oat.

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
