Description

Vetchling is a native annual of open and often disturbed grasslands particularly chalk and chalky clay soils. Habitats include grassy banks, roadside verges, woodland rides and coastal grasslands. This is a winter hardy annual which can be grown on its own or with Westerwolds or Rye for the protection of soils over the winter. Best sown during September and by mid October. Vetch makes good silage too and is often mixed with oats.
