If you didn’t look at reseeding last spring, this autumn could be an ideal time to invest in your forage quantity and quality.
Tonic Plantain Seed
Plantain is a herb that is being used more in the UK. Parts of New Zealand use Plantain to increase mineral intake, reduce scouring during wet weather and reduce dagging from sheep. It has a deep tap root which makes Plantain particularly drought resistant. Similar to Chicory, Plantain is not a legume and would require a source of Nitrogen.
The leaves are spear shaped and scarcely toothed with three to seven strong parallel veins to a short stalk. Plantain can adapt to a wider range of soils when compared to Chicory. However it does not grow well in deep sands or waterlogged soils. It can be sown as a straight or mixed with regular grassland mixtures to increase grazing quality. You can also mix it with red and white clover as great forage for finishing lambs which has been successfully trialled locally in the UK in the last 2 years.
