What exactly is frost seeding? I have new property and am planning to plant a mixture of clover this spring. Durana for sure And maybe patriot with it for quicker growth. If frost seeding is a good success, I'd like to try it next month.

You go out in the winter and broadcast your seed on top of the ground. The freeze/thaw action of the soil in Winter works the seed into the ground. I like to use it to thicken up thin spots in existing clover fields, works well for that. I have some Resolute Im about to do just that with.

Frost seeding works great. Do it every year.

Does normal discing work or does tilling the ground smooth need to be done?

Just spread it. Matter of fact some of my best clover plots come this way.

Do you guys like to do yours as close to spring as possible or does it really matter?

Im glad you asked this question and got responses because it answered some of my questions. I gotta try it out!

I like planting stuff for wildlife as much as I like hunting them.

You want to sow with enough time for the freeze-thaw-freeze-thaw to work the tiny seeds into the soil. Wait too late, and the opportunity will be missed.
