View Full Version : alfalfa
If you plant alfalfa from seed in the early spring, does it mature enough to flower the first season?

not really. We plant alfalfa with a cover crop like oats, barley or wheat. The second year it will flower if you give it enough nutritents, but it is still "skimpy". The third year will do better.

It will bloom where your at the first year if you fertilize it right, second year will be the best and if you can find a farmer to cut it for you after the bloom you can get two or three blooms off it.
