When grown as a green manure crop, plants are best dug back into the soil when the leaves are still fresh & green. Should plants begin to flower prior to this time, the tops should be cut off & then the plant dug in. Allow the green manure to break down in the soil for up to 4 weeks before planting any vegetables.
