Description

Fagopyrum esculentum

65 grams


30 - 40 days. Buckwheat not only improves your garden?s soil, this fast-growing plant is great as a ?smother? crop to inhibit growth of common garden weeds such as lambsquarter, pigweed, thistle, purslane, and even tough quackgrass. Buckwheat grows in soils with poor fertility, and after germination requires little water; avoid wet soil and shady sites. Seeds sprout within days of sowing; plants grow quickly and are ready to till into the garden a month later. Unlike some other cover crops, the succulent buckwheat plants and fibrous roots are easy to mix into the soil with a shovel or rototiller. You can also leave cut plants on the soil surface as mulch. The white flowers attract many beneficial insects to the garden, especially bees that feed on the nectar to make delicious honey. A late summer sowing provides a wonderful food source for honeybees, since other nectar sources become more limited at this time of year. Flowers can also be cut and added to a fresh bouquet.

This packet plants approximately 125 square feet.
