Reputable seed vendors...especially white clover?
« on: November 29, 2011, 08:35:01 PM »
I'm going to plant some white perennial clover and was wondering if anybody had some recommendations on online sources.  I found an online vendor by the name of outsidepride.com that had some good prices and a varied assortment of other flowering plant seed but there are mixed reviews about them...anybody used them before?  Any recommendations?

I don't have a tractor available so I'll be broadcasting it over established bahia grass that was bailed at the end of the season along with broadcasting it in out of the way spots here and there along fence rows, field roads, ditch banks, etc.,.  Same thing with some good perennial bee attractive flowers and re-seeding annuals, but to a lesser degree.  Any suggestions or guidance here is appreciated, too!  I know I can't make a crop off of what I plant...but every little bit helps. ;)

Thanks,
Ed

Go by the local feed and seed shop and check with them.   They can order anything and you will save on shipping.   It takes a lot to ship 50 pounds.

Yeah, I called the coop today.  They had some ladino, but I'm hoping to find some New Zealand...it's a bit more drought resistant.  I may see if they can get some NZ for me.

I use welter's seed for foodplot seeds that I cannot get locally.  Very friendly service.
