What's everyone's experience with Ladino clover? I have some I'm planting this fall and am curious what you guys think of it.
I ordered the large ladino and chickory today from Welters seed company in Iowa. They are currently out of stock but they said it will be in early next week and they will then ship it.
Not sure to be honest with you. The local co-op carries it by the scoop. Labeled Ladino and he said it's the variety that they've had the best growth with in this region.I assume you're talking about VNS ladino?
Is the medium red the same as red forage clover ? I bought 5 lbs of RFC this year to try out with my ladino. Folks at the seed store recommended it but I know nothing about it.Ladino is my go to perennial clover. Actually it is the only perennial clover I plant. In recent years I have started adding a medium red clover with my ladino plantings and the two work together great to provide high quality nutrition almost 12 months a year. When the ladino goes dormant during hot dry summers is when the red provides important forage. Late winter is about the only time when the clover plots aren't producing.
