I'm digging over an area which will become a lawn - I hope! It will be bare all winter so I thought of sowing a green manure. The ground is mainly heavy compacted clay/gravel which has been uncultivated in any way and although I will be adding compost etc as well, I thought it would benefit from it. I can get loads of manure to lay on top but it would save me a lot of physical effort - I'm worn out!
It would also save me from having to net or cover it to prevent the area becoming a sea of weeds and a giant cat litter tray
Has anyone used them successfully?
