    As a first time cover cropper ,I broadcast your garden mix ,pressed the seed into the surface-loosened soil with the back of a long handled square end shovel, then spread enough compost to cover all seed. This resulted in a fairly good stand, but I think that at least some larger seed (peas etc) not placed deeply enough either did not germinate or soon died .Is there a better method to deal with this ? Maybe directions included in the future? Thanks for a good product.

    In response to our comments:
    Yes, you can create a mix of various cover crop seeds and plant them in the same area. For a complete mix of our best-selling cover crop seeds try our Garden Cover Crop Mix. It does contain both overwintering and winter-kill seeds so plan accordingly.

    Can you mix cover crops and plant in same area ?

    Hi! Thanks for the information. Just wondering though, I purchased the Cover Crop Mix from True Leaf Market. Just wondering if it is considered a Winter-Killed or Overwintering Fall cover crop. Thanks for your help!
