Medics

Medics image

Medics, like Sub Clover are self-regenerating annual clover varieties that grow in autumn, winter and spring.  Medics will thrive in lower rainfall regions and are well adapted to coastal regions, high pH and slightly acid soils.  Medics will regenerate readily if allowed to set seed and will provide large volumes of palatable forage which can be grazed or cut for hay/silage.
