    You should ask first.

    It would be the right thing to do.

    And a man should do what is right.

    No, you can do what is called frost seeding. If you broad cast the seed now, he tiny clover seeds are worked into the soil by the freeze-thaw cycle of the top soil in the spring... in northern climates. White clover is cold tolerant, but won't take off until later in the year.

    Crimson clover is an annual, and will do better if you wait until the danger of frost is past. Crimson has a larger seed than dutch white clover and grows much faster.

    Well based on the advice from the forum I did broadcast seed and will wait until better weather to see the results. I also was told white clover does not flower until the 2nd year. Hope this advice is incorrect.

    Don't worry, it will flower the first season... it gets better each season... but it will still flower the first year.

    Where can I get crimson clover seed at a good price for a small quantity, like 5 lbs. John

    You can try your local cooperative or "feed and seed" store... crimson is not very expensive... ball is, but it covers a much larger area...
