Cover Crop, Hairy Vetch is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nab1 from Very invasive Hairy vetch is the bain of my existence! It invades perennials and is impossible to eliminate without destroying the plant it's growing in. If I had a choice, I would not use it as a cover crop in fear it would invade my yard.
