welter seed is da place and over 50 lbs its free shipping - so buy your oats there and you are set....
i planted norceen birdsfoot trefoil with jumbo ladino and ladino and.... heres the kicker.... forage feast chickory. the deer and grouse love it more than i thought they would.
i highly recommend it for your perrenial. im in nw wi, and my other plots are a swap year to year of pt turnips and winter oats. in all truth, the deer here could do without the turnips, but i still plant them because they produce a ton of forage, but even at a half acre theres alot of bulbs left in the ground, but most of the greens are eaten. but those oats!!! the deer hit em in oct and dont stop heck they are kicking through the snow for the oats and its almost feb!!!! they love em and if planted in the last week of august they produce quite a bit of forage thats very attractive. the only thing stopping me from planting an entire acre of oats instead of 1/2 each is the variety and the fact theres still some left after season.
as for the bs about deer hacking through the snow to get to turnip bulbs - not here anyways. they go for the oats and clover through the snow instead.
2 lbs max on the turnips in a 1/2 acre, they stunt otherwise and the bulbs are tiny then, if you use a smaller amount the bulbs and plants get ginormous.
this is my award winning plot setup[:)]!! THE DEER LIKE IT plenty!!!! and i planted the turnips beginning in july, and give em another hit of nitro when u plant your oats and they'll grow like pigweed!
only if we had antler point restrictions...
try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.
