More Than A Sprouting Seed
Trifolium pratense, or more commonly known as red clover, is native to much of Europe, Asia, and western Africa, but has since naturalized throughout most of the world. Red clover has traditionally been grown as a fodder crop for livestock but has since become popular as an essential seasonal cover crop. Organic red clover develops a deep taproot known to break up hard, clay-heavy soils generally found in uncultivated grow spaces or land that has not been tilled in years. Red clover also is prized for its ability to convert atmospheric nitrogen back into the soil, while also serving as a popular cropped to be mulched back into the soil as organic “green manure” to prepare the garden for future sowing. Red clover is also harvested for both traditional and alternative medicinal remedies including use as a sedative, expectorant, and anti-inflammatory.
