Friday evening, I tried frost seeding crimson red clover over four established white clover plots.

Over the last 24 hours, we had several inches of solid ice and maybe two inches of snow cover the ground.

Will this ice storm work as well as frost seeding?

As long as the ground freezes and gets all mushy so the seeds can be covered with dirt, they will grow. To be honest, a lot of real hard rain would do the same thing if there was enough bare dirt and it was soft/worked up enough.

This weekend I'm planning to seed over a couple of my plots that I put in last year. Plenty of bare ground....the clover is was ate all the way down over winter. The forecast calls for continued freeze thaw. How much longer before it's too late to frost seed?

It's getting close to the end but that depends heavily on where exactly you are and when the nightime freezing ends. Clover panting in general ends about mid MArch so I'd be reluctant to go beyond this weekend even in well worked up soil and culti-packing. There's too much risk of it coming up then drying up if we have a dry Spring.

These last few warm days really have the clover popping right now. Huge difference this past Sat as opposed to two weeks ago.
