Green Manure

Unlike conventional green manure, Suttons varieties incorporate both a nitrogen fixer and/or a lifter to ensure your soil gets the maximum nutrients required to give you the best crops.

Suttons combines a minimum of two varieties as a mixture of species usually provides better results than just a single one. This is due to the different growth characteristics of each species throughout the life of the crop, plus more reliable establishment.
