We plant all kinds of clovers in the fall. Crimson, arrowhead, whites, all in food plots for deer. What we planted back in August is just very very small right now, one inch high at the most. Too small for the deer really to eat, but by spring, it will be knee high. And the bees love it. You are planting such a small amount, I would not worry about having the soil tested but it to me does seem late for planting, but you are south of me.
