I can be done. You will need to have your soil Ph in the 6 to 6.5 range for all clovers. This is the most important thing.

Make sure the seed has rhizobial inoculant when it is planted.

Sweetclover (Melilotus albus or Melilotus officinalis) is a biennial, but will reseed and will do better on well drained sandy loam soils. Seed at a rate of 20 lbs/acre in the Fall.

White clover (Dutch White Clover, New Zealand White Clover, Ladino Clover) is a perennial and will do better on a clay based soil. Seed at a rate of 6 lbs/acre in the Fall.
