This unique blend is for the serious Whitetail hunter. Designed for primarily open sunny areas and lighter soils, Wall Hanger is a healthy blend of alfalfa, chicory and clovers that green up quickly in the Spring and provides high protein forage through early Fall.
Like many perennials, alfalfa and chicory grow slowly at first and are very susceptible to overgrazing when first planted. To protect these young plants during the critical early stages of growth we also blend in a small percentage of forage turnips, forage rape, and radishes to act as nurse crops for your new seeding. These nurse or cover crops will provide high protein forage for your deer while protecting the young plants from being overgrazed. The following season your clover, chicory and alfalfa will come in strong yet the cover crops will have done their job and will not come back.
Wall Hanger is pH sensitive so for best results you want your soil acidity to be between 6.5 and 7.5.
Seeding rate is 8-10 lbs/acre. Plant Spring or late Summer. Prefers full sun, does well in light or sandy soil.
