    I have read about planting clover seed in February on frosted ground - called frost planting. Anyone ever tried it - any success?

    I have read quit a bit about it and it is referred to as frost seeding. Make sure you plant a clover seed that can be frost seeded...because some can't.

    Like y'all I've read about, but never could muster the courage to try it.

    I tried "dust planting" this past fall, and I know that did not work!

    Will work just fine! You will probably need to use a selective grass killer in the spring to get rid of the competition and allow the clover to grow. Best to seed right before a snow. The snow will help carry it into the ground.

    I am starting to think a spring planting is better than planting in a dust bowl. We are dropping a ton of lime Saturday.
