In the spring , clover is always a good choice, in Delaware we try to get clover in around the end of March, the spring rains set the seed and gets it going.

Can't go wrong with clover. But, please do a couple ph tests first. Lime to a 7.0 at least a 6.5 it will be money well spent and labor time saved. You only get one spring to make a great fall.

DevinCampPA - Welcome to the board.

I've not used any biologic products, but might offer a little advice.

Have you tried this site for planting dates? : http://www.mossyoakbiologic.com/plan...e/northern.asp

Most clover plots can be spring seeded - It would be nice to know what else is in the mix though.

For instance - FULL DRAW - is a fall planting - because it conatins alot of cold weather grains - like RYE. If you planted this in the spring - the RYE would head out and Die by August, and the clovers in the mix would suffer in their growth - the plot would be generally unattractive to deer all summer unless you kept it mowed - and if you mow it - the Rye was a wasted seed.

The manufacturers do not always want you to know what's in the mix - but its really important to know at least what types of seeds are there - or to follow the Company's direction.

Good luck in your plot this spring. There will be alot of planting talk soon - post back how you are making out.
