Winter rye, also known as cereal rye, is one of the most common cover crops as it produces a strong ground cover over a short period of time. With its deep rooting system it prevents compaction in fields that are tilled often. Although rye is traditionally grown as a cover on agricultural cropland between growing seasons, it is also great for home gardens.
-Plant in spring or fall to protect your soil throughout the winter months and suppress weeds throughout the early spring.
-Broadcast seed and lightly rake the soil.
-Sow 5 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft.
-Sow 50 lbs. per acre

Any seed purchased from us must be of the quality represented to you. If not, you may return it at our expense. Your money will be refunded or issued as a credit to another purchase. See below for details. All prices are subject to change without notice.
*Non-warranty – Every care is exercised to give all customers seed of good quality that will prove profitable and satisfactory, yet the following clause is to be made plain. We give no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the productiveness of any seeds we sell and will not in any way be responsible for the crop. Our liability, in all instances, is limited to the purchase price of the seed only.
Please check your order immediately upon arrival and report any problems promptly. We reserve the right to request return of any product deemed unsatisfactory prior to approval of any adjustment.
Any plant materials purchased in the spring which fail to grow will be replaced or credit voucher issued, one time, provided they have been properly cared for and we are notified by October 1st of the year it was purchased.
Bulbs or plants shipped in the summer or fall which fail to grow will be replaced or credit voucher issued, one time, provided they have been planted properly and the loss is not due to poor winter protection or rodents and we are notified by June 1st of the following year.
We also guarantee your complete satisfaction with our gardening supplies and accessories (non-growing items) when used according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Note-Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these factors are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed or issue a credit voucher, one time. We guarantee that the seeds we sell conform to the label: however, our liability is limited to the purchase price of the seed.
Typographical Errors – Although every precaution is taken to assure accuracy, errors in price, quantity and/or specifications may occur. We reserve the right to correct such errors. Sale items will only be issued a credit voucher for purchase price.
