The lime and fertilizer is a question in my mind. The soil probably is acidic due to the oaks. I'm planning next weekend to plant the Secret Spot below my stand on a hillside. It has a spring seep so I know water will not be a problem. I'll plant on both sides of the seep.
It sounds like the No-Plow may be a better choice though if it's coming up better than the others.

For sure keeep us posted.

how long does the no-plow last until you have to replant it again?

Until it dies in the winter/late fall.

How much is a bag of no-plow for about an acre? I am looking at the same deal...I hunt thick woods in Northern New England and would like something to draw the deer in!!!

Thanks

I thought most of the Secret Spot was for late fall when the leaves fell off the trees. I have not used it but plan to this year.

A 9lb. bag to cover 1/2 an acre is about $30.00. There is a 25lb. bag that's $75.00 or so.

It doesn't say when to plant on the bag,however it does say it is more attractive during the first few weeks of growth.
May be better to plant right before the season.
