Maximize Soil Nutrition with This Simple Tip

Clover is great for your garden soil. It’s a natural nitrogen fixer and an excellent ground cover. People plant it in their gardens and fields as a soil amendment. It helps to replenish the soil of lost nutrients, after growing a heavy feeding crop like tomatoes and squash.

Clover also grows naturally and likes to seed itself among other weeds, like dandelions, grasses, thistles, plantain and many others. However, don’t pull out that clover and dispose of it along with the other weeds.

If you look carefully at clover’s roots, you will discover tiny nodules attached. The more pink they are, the more nitrogen they contain.

Check out the video below to see what you can do with clover, to maximize your soil nutrition.
