Fagopyrum esculentum- Annual, 8" to 3’ tall, non-legume warm weather cover crop. Has an allelopathic action that suppresses weeds and its flowers attract beneficial insects and bees. Accumulates insoluble phosphorus for release to plants later. Planted early, it is an excellent trap crop for thrips during bloom of fruits and vines. 30-45 days to maturity. Note: this tender foliage will die from light frost.

    I run a community garden and use buckwheat as a fast growing summer cover crop in N AL. In beds that are not in use or interplant to bring in pollinators.

    Amazing Buckwheat!!!

    We were looking for a fast growing cover crop to smother out weeds that we inadvertently brought into our garden with weedy straw. This was our answer. I sowed it on Sunday and it was up on Thursday. We have a beautiful carpet of buckwheat and couldn't be happier!
