Green Crop Seeds

A green crop is the growing of a crop that will be dug back into the soil. It is a natural method of soil maintenance, when dug into the soil it will boost and replace lost nutrients. This will also encourage earthworms and other beneficial micro organisms to your garden.

Green crops have the added benefit of keeping soil aerated over winter while they're growing; their roots help provide soil structure, reducing the likelihood of wet, compacted soil in spring. They also help prevent the leaching of nutrients which happens when heavy rain hits bare soil.
