Green Manure - Hairy Vetch or others
I am in the process of establishing my gardens and revamping some of my yard. After reading about cover crops and green manure, I came up with the idea of growing some hairy vetch in a patch of my yard to cut down and put into the composter. The problem is that this area of my yard gets very little sun.
So, first question is in theory is this a good idea? In practice is it a good idea? Is there a cover crop that will grow in shade?
Thanks for the help.
