Thanks to the guys at Bob's feed and fertilizer here in Crossville I'm well on my way to starting a great plot. They have a blend that contains Wheat, Whole Oats, Austria Winter Peas, Red Clover, Rape, Crimpson Clover, Purple Hull Peas, Ladino Clover, Buckwheat, White Clover, Alfafa, Turnip, Sunflower, and Chicory.

That seems like a little of everything and I can't wait to see how this turns out. Has anyone here used their mixture?

A) What are the percentages?
I'm just curious how much of a true mixture it is. That is the only problem I have found with some mixtures. I have looked at some "mixtures" that have many of the things you mention but it is like 80%+ rape. For example, Chicory is very expensive and I would be surprised if they're giving you much of that in your mixture. Then again, I don't know what you paid either.
B) What was the price tag?

Sounds like they gave you everything they had!!!!

Just remember, sunflower, buckwheat, purple hull, will be dead at first frost.

Also gonna be hard to get a correct seeding depth with that variety of seeds. You have clovers and brassicsa that need a 1/4 inch depth and wheat and oats that can be 1 to 1 and half.

What about percentages? If they're not listed - might not really be the cat's meow.

I'm really not sure of the %. Hopefully its a fair deal. I bought an extrsa bag of wheat and oats so I can't go wrong from what the old timers have told me.
