Similarly, you may ask, should I cut my clover food plot?
Regular mowing clover plots back to 6 inches is suggested to keep a constant supply of fresh, young, tender greens. Clover responds to mowing with aggressive growth. Mowing is fine in spring and early summer but is not generally a good idea during the hot summer season.
One may also ask, can you mow red clover? In middle to late August, mow the red clover. It will also remove weeds that have grown after harvest. Cutting the red clover for weed management should be timed when the weeds have not produced viable seeds. Flail mowing the clover is best since it doesn't result in red clover piles that could smother new growth.
Also to know is, does Clover need to be mowed?
Once established, most clovers are low-growing and require little or no mowing, unless you wish to discourage bees by mowing to prevent summer blooms. Never apply herbicides to a clover lawn. It is a short-lived perennial and may require reseeding approximately once every 3 years to maintain consistent coverage.
Does Clover come back every year?
Once established, perennial clover comes back reliably, making it more suitable as a groundcover than annual species that usually need reseeding each year. Perennial clover will self-seed too, but it spreads consistently through its creeping root system.
