The All Important Question About Clover
The all important question about clover is: does clover share the nitrogen it fixes with nearby plants while it is still alive? At first it seemed like a nobrainer that it did; after all, sharing nitrogen forms the whole basis for the notion of a clover lawn. However, as I researched it a little bit, I discovered that there is actually quite a bit of disagreement on the issue. I have found more than one article stating that the fixed nitrogen only serves the clover plant (until it dies and its roots, stem, and leaves degrade into the soil).
I've found enough conflicting views on this matter that I'm no longer 100% sure I want to plant a clover lawn. What are your thoughts/expertise on this?
