How does it work?

Cover crops work on growing fasting producting green crops that can be harvested and turned into the topsoil as a quick and effective source of closed loop topdressing.

Many of the seeds in our mixture are legumes, which undergo a process called nitrogren fixation, which allows them to extract nitrogen from the atmosphere. This ultimately increases the nitrogen content of the soil when the crop is harvested and composted back into the soil.

Mycellium and Mycorrhizae are able to establish themselves in the soil / compost pile through the spreading of the root / rhizome of the cover crop. This assists your plants to 'hit the ground running' when you transplant your next crop into the soil, as its pre-inocculated with amazing biology!
