Getting my plan together for February seeding, and priced Ladino v. White Dutch clovers. The Ladino is 33% to 40% higher seed price wise. Is the price difference worth it, or should I put the extra $ in maintenance and fertilizer. Thanks!

I like Ladino pretty good, haven't tried the Dutch.

Never used White Dutch but if your going to try an establish a clover field in the spring your going to have to have good maintenance to try an combat the weeds and grasses with the slow start the clover will have. Make sure your lime is right or your just wasting your money.

You might also consider Durana clover; it's all I plant anymore. Though it's a little slower to establish it is EXTREMELY drought resistant, long lived, and fairly easy to maintain. Yes it costs a bit more initially, but over the long term it's a pretty competitive alternative.

Might also consider Durranna, or Patriot.

I've never heard one bad thing about durranna other than the price!

It's a little slower to establish, but really make a "blanket" that second with proper ground prep.

Not to hijack - i planted alot durana in the fall and it really didnt do much. when u say slow to establish does that mean it might still grow?

Yes, it will Probably take off in the spring. Once established and if you take care of it it is amazing clover.
