- Cover seed with ¼” of soil
- Plants will sprout and grow to full size in approximately 30 days
- For maximum benefit turn into soil when at its peak bloom time

Buckwheat is a favorite of honeybees and other pollinators. During spring, summer, and fall we aim to always have buckwheat in bloom for the pollinators.

I ordered the buckwheat to cover a bare area of ground, approximately 10 x 40 ft. It germinated quickly and flowered within 30 days. It was easily incorporated into the soil. The flowers are pretty too. I’ll be ordering crimson clover to mix in with an oats and peas cover crop for the winter.
