As a cover crop, buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) brings a lot to the table. This plant grows quickly to smother weeds and protect from erosion. If allowed to mature, groats are protein-rich and provide a nutritious alternative to wheat for anyone who needs to avoid gluten. Beekeepers love its nutritional benefits for honeybees. 70-90 days to maturity.

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
