What is Green Manure used for?

After a busy growing season and spent plants are cleared, we are left with bare soil. There are a number of problems which can then develop. Soil erosion can occur, leaching, the washing away of nutrients due to rains takes place. The more pernicious weeds will colonise and fill the void. 

The sowing of green manure will negate all these issues as well as providing cover for soil particles and soil structure, controlling movement of air and water through soil and suppressing weeds. Once the spring comes, Green Manures are dug into the soil adding more structure and nutrients. Green manure both protects and enhances soil health.
