White Blossom Sweet Clover is one of the most popular bee attractant and nectar sources used in the US. 
White Blossom Sweet Clovers makes a very appealing, light colored honey.
Sweet clover flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies and many pollinating species.
Sweet clovers are highly used for honey production, yielding up to 200 pounds per colony have been obtained (USDA, 1937). Seed production fields using pollinators yield over 700 lbs of seed/acre vs 80-100 lbs of seed/acre not using natural pollinators.
White Blossom may also be used as a Nitrogen source for green manure or plowdown mixtures, capable of adding 80-100 units of N per acre while improving soil tilth.
White Blossom can be used for hay and pasture, however it has more of a bitter taste than other species of clover (sweet clovers have coumarin in their plant tissue which can become bitter).
While cattle may graze sweet clover sparingly, they will increase their intake once they get used to the taste.

White Blossom Sweet Clover is pre-inoculated with an OMRI Listed inoculation for improved establishment and growth. Inoculation is recommended when planting legumes.
*Details on Seed Coatings, Inoculations & the OMRI downloadable certificates on our Reference Page.

Establishment

Plant at 1/4″ depth.
An ideal soil bed is moist, fertile and firm.
A soil test is recommended for proper plant establishment and growth.

Management

White Blossom should be grazed in the spring and early summer when its palatability is at its highest, later in the season, stems may become “woody”.
Sweet Clover hay yields are good, however hay must be cut in the bud to 12% bloom stage because full flowering will result in stemmy plants with lower quality.
White Blossom is a true biennial, heading out the 2nd year after planting.
White Blossom Sweet Clover grows to 5-6 feet tall and blooms approximately two weeks later than yellow blossom sweet clover. White Blossom Sweet Clover does not do well on acid soils and prefers well drained soils. White Blossom Sweet Clover works best in short rotations and is not as palatable as other legumes such as white clover in pastures or as consistent as red clover in producing high quality hay.

Guarantee

OUR PROMISE

A money-back guarantee, also known as a satisfaction guarantee, is essentially a simple guarantee that, if a buyer is not satisfied with a product or service, a refund will be made.
The 18th century entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood pioneered many of the marketing strategies used today, including the satisfaction-or-money-back guarantee on the entire range of his pottery products. He took advantage of his guarantee offer to send his products to rich clientele across Europe unsolicited. The money-back guarantee was also a major tool of early U.S. mail order sales pioneers in the United States such as Richard Sears and Powel Crosley Jr. to win the confidence of consumers.
