***NOT TO TAS, WA***  (Avena sativa)  An ancient grain commonly used for food, fodder, as a green manure crop or for straw.  Beneficial for adding bulk organic matter & controlling nematodes in the soil.

When grown as a green manure crop, plants are best dug back into the soil when the leaves are still fresh & green after approx. 8 weeks after planting.  Allow the green manure to break down in the soil for up to 4 weeks before planting any vegetables.

Grows best in areas with cool, wet summers.  Will tolerate a wide range of soil & slightly acid soils.

Best sown in either in autumn (for late summer harvest) or in the spring (for early autumn harvest).

Broadcast as needed or at a rate of 125kg/ha or 10g/sqm

Smaller packets are ideal for the home garden.
