Buckwheat for multiple reasons

by Hedi
(Woodland, Georgia)

We’ve been planting buckwheat in hard-to-cultivate areas for about 3 years now. Our clover seeds have germinated well under the cover of buckwheat, and the buckwheat has provided nectar for our bees at times when there are few other resources available. The buckwheat plants have improved our hard-packed clay and choked out some of the problem plants in newly cleared areas.

We bought buckwheat and Dutch white clover from David’s and we’re very happy with the germination rates of both. They are the first vendor I look for on Amazon when I’m looking for seeds and we’ve never been disappointed. I’m so glad to be able to order direct from the website.
