Green manures are fast-growing plants sown to cover bare soil. Often used in the vegetable garden, their foliage smothers weeds and their roots prevent soil erosion, improve soil health, fix nitrogen, and will improve water infiltration. When dug into the ground while still green, they return valuable nutrients to the topsoil and improve soil structure. 

This green manure mix typically includes Chicory, Crimson Clover, Annual Ryegrass, Peas, Linseed, Oats, Tillage Radish Ryecorn, Purple Vetch, Winter Wheat, Forage Rape and Leafy Turnip, depending upon seed availability. 

This will enrich the soil with both nitrogen and organic matter. 

It is designed for Autumn sowing, but it may be sown anytime early to late autumn.  

Why grow Green Manures? Green manures are a range of seeds that are sown specifically to improve or assist with soil fertility and/or the conditioning of soil. 

Bigger, more prolific crops - Green manures will lift or fix nitrates into your soil providing this essential element for bumper harvests

Soil enhancer - Ensures your soil gets the maximum nutrients required to give you the best crops

Easier digging - Deep rooting green species improves the soil's structure by loosening and aerating the soil

Environmentally friendly - Reduces the need to use chemical fertilisers

Less weeding - The leafy nature of the Green Manure acts as a weed suppressant whilst retaining soil moisture

Pest control - Helps control pests and provides shelter for beneficial insects

 

Planting your cover crop (Prepare your own Organic Manure):

As a general guide sow autumn; in areas with cold winters in southern Australia, begin sowing in early March and again in early spring; most of northern NSW and Queensland should wait until late April - May before sowing; in frost-free areas, these seeds can be sown right through winter, until early August. 

Gently rake the soil surface, sow a generous amount of cover crop seed on your garden or raised bed soil. No need to disturb the soil with heavy digging or tilling - just simply raking the top 10mm of soil will allow enough space for the cover crop to germinate. 

This is an excellent choice for green manure crops because they can germinate and begin growing in as little as 7 to 10 days. Within a four-week time frame, you can have a thick stock of growing “green” manure” for your soil. 

It is important to let the soil rest a few weeks after turning the cover crop to allow the green manure crop to decompose a bit before throwing in your plants. So get out there and plant a garden-soil energizing cover crop this Autumn-Winter!

GreenManure - first time for me

I am unfamiliar with the product, but everything is growing nicely and at the end of May, I will turn the soil and hopefully when I start planting six weeks later, I will be able to see the result.
