It is too soon to use this year as clover seed only sprouts when warm. However, I sowed the same clover last year and it sprouted very well. It did not have any **** seed in it. I changed most of my back yard from coarse grass to clover using this. Clover doesn't need fertilizer (it is a nitrogen fixer) or regular watering (once established). I only had to cut the grass twice instead of 8 times last year. It stays green longer too. It is a good change environmentally. Clover does require full sun though.
