Similarly, it is asked, does clover have deep roots?
Root pits have revealed that clover roots run surprisingly deep, and experts have note that soil biology and soil tilth have improved markedly where clover is used. It also has a very fibrous root mass. “We've found roots down to 34 inches, even when only 2 inches of top growth was present.”
Beside above, does Clover spread quickly? Perennial clover varieties create a fast-growing, dense web of roots and plant material over disturbed soil, keeping it in place. Planting clover in the garden will also help attract bees and other pollinators. Clover can, however, be highly invasive in some areas, as it spreads rapidly by seed and from the roots.
Also, how long does clover last?
Can you over plant clover?
You can't just plant it and forget it. If it is not grazed heavily during the warm months weeds will take over the plot and the competition from the weeds for water, nutrition, and sunlight can damage or destroy the clover.
