Green Manure Phacelia
Green Manure Phacelia. A valuable, quick growing, hardy annual green manure particularly good in dry soils, but suitable for all soil types. Can be used as a summer/autumn manure, or overwinter from a September sowing for spring digging in. The attractive foliage quickly smothers weeds and its extensive root system improves the soil structure. If left to flower will attract bees and other beneficial insects. Contents: 50g (1.75 oz) sufficient to sow 22 sq.m (approx 23.75 sq.yd).
March – September
June – August
How to Sow
Sow from March to August, or September to overwinter, whenever the soil is vacant for at least 2 months, or where there is an area which requires increased fertility. Roughly dig over the soil removing any weeds. Lightly tread over the soil. Broadcast (scatter) the seed over the soil surface, carefully rake and water well in.
