Green Manure Buckwheat is a fast growing short-term summer green manure for poor soils. Grows extremely fast, forming a dense canopy of foliage that smothers weeds and produces large amounts of organic matter.
A good source of calcium, its long roots extract nutrients from deep in the soil. When left to flower it attracts hoverflies whose larvae feed on aphids.
