Description

Vetch is a tall, erect annual with an angled stem to about 90cm. The crimson pink flowers are held solitarily or in pairs on a long stalk from May to July.

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.

Vetch and our other game and cover crops offer both essential ground cover and food for both game-birds and for a wide range of wildlife, from voles to deer. For all our Game Cover Crops please see our full range.
