It was SO dry back in September and October, I held out to the very end before I sowed my Imperial Clover. I got it in the ground just before that big rain in October. I fertilized and limed it. It sprouted fairly good but then a few days later we had a frost and it really hasn't made a lot of progress since then. I was wondering if maybe the frost stunted it ? Based on what you see in these pics, what do u think I can expect for this plot ? http://www.flickr.com/photos/20678406@N04/2018187855/in/photostream/

You should be ok. You really won't get alot of growth until spring. Then next fall it should be kicking butt.

When I fall plant clover I like to mix in winter wheat just have a little green for the winter. It takes a while for the lime to take effect so next spring you should see a big difference.

Clover spends about 6wks or so setting its roots, thats why earlier in the fall is pref but we all know and understand your good reasoning. you will get a really good jump start in spring because of planting in fall. you wont see much growth though for now.

You will be very pleased with the IW clover. Mine had the test of all tests this summer. It was crunchy brown for 1.5 months. Then the first rain in september brought it back to life. I thought it was dead for sure. Once it gets a foothold it is some tuff stuff.

You should also look into spraying it with Arrest or Slay in the spring when it gets 3-5 inches high. I wish I would have with my first clover plot. I had 50/50 clover/grass my second year. Arrest is made by WI and it worked great for me. You can get a product at the Co-op called POST and get the same results for cheaper. I have a 1 acre plot that I used it for so I didn't need to buy in bulk. Slay is for broad leaf weeds...so it all depends what it looks like in the spring.
One more thing. Mow it when it gets a foot tall, but only do 1/2 the plot at a time. Good luck.
