Cover Crop, Warm Climate is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not this year .... Have used this product in the past with excellent results. Believed that would happen again this year, but no way. The pea germinated well and looks great, but less than one percent of the rye germinated. It has been 20 days since sowing with watering every day. A big disappointment after typical Burpee product results in the last two years.
