Ball Clover - Great for Honey Bees


Ball Clover is a cool season clover that is sometimes mistaken for white clover, but the blooms are smaller and more rounded. Although Ball Clover can be quite productive, it has a shorter growing season and often yields less than other commonly grown annual clovers. Ball Clover is a prolific seed producer even under high stocking rates, and a high percentage of the seed are hard seed; thus Ball Clover is an excellent reseeding clover.

The primary period of growth is early to mid-spring. It is best suited to heavy soils, but is surprisingly well adapted to fairly dry sites as well. Short, 1-2' tall, erect growth and low growing.

Planting Rate: 3 to 4 lbs. per acre. Planting Depth: 1/10"-1/4". (Inoculate seed with rhizobium bacteria type "B:, clover group.)

    YOU planted it in Feb-Mar. Ball clover is to be planted in late Sep to early Dec in most of the US. It is an annual and needs the winter to put down root. It seeds out in April-May, its about done by June. You didn't plant it early enough for it to grow. Don't blame the seed company for your failure to research. And if you put twenty pounds on 1.5 acres when it calls for a seeding rate of 4lbs to the acre, you put down 14lbs to many and wasted time and resources. Over seeding does not make up for poor soil or poor planting practices.
