Timothy

Timothy OG

Phleum pratense Europeans noted it in 1711 along the banks of the Piscataqua river in New Hampshire. Named for Timothy Hanson who promoted its use as hay. As perennial hay it produces good yields, resists lodging and is easily cut and cured. Timothy sown with red clover provides excellent forage and strong yields. Harvest early, in the boot stage, to avoid stemmy hay. Very winter hardy. Best adapted to clay or loam soils with lots of moisture. The seed may be drilled or broadcast. Seed alone or with winter wheat in the fall; in spring, seed with red clover or alfalfa. Grows to 3½'. Seed at a rate of 12–15#/acre alone or 9#/acre when mixed, ½#/1000 sq ft. Certified organic.

Additional Information

Farm Seed

Unless otherwise noted, our legume seed is sold “raw”: it has not been inoculated with the appropriate bacteria in a process called rhizocoating.

Organic Seed

We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
All our seed is untreated.

Organically grown seed is labeled OG.
The label ECO after the variety name describes non-certified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
