How to Grow Red Clover From Seed
# 1 | Since red clover is considered a weed by some, it is relatively easy to grow as long as the conditions are right.
# 2 | Red clover likes rich, fast-draining soil and full sun to light shade. When the average temperature in your area in between 55-65 degrees, plant your clover seeds on top of moist soil and gently press seeds into the soil to compact. Keep seeds evenly moist until germination which should occur in 5-10 days.
# 3 | Once established water clover plants deeply every 5-7 days.
