It began last year with a small patch of clover and now it's a major
problem taking over the entire front lawn. It also attracts deer that
eat the clover and they then eat the shrubs for desert.
How do I kill the clover without killing the remaining grass?
The deer hunters in these parts plant clover fields to attract the
deer so they're partial to clover. I'll use the broadleaf weed killer
for the clover now and dust off my old 30-30 Marlin 336 for deer
burgers this comming November...Thanks for the replys.
Leave the clover alone so it attracts more deer. They will eat the clover,
and you can bag them if they go for the shrubbery. Deer burgers...nummy!
Deer steaks aren't bad if you can catch a young one, they tend to be a bit
chewy if it's an older deer. Older deer make fabulous stews. And what isn't
fit for human consumption will be eagerly devoured by the dogs :-)
I used to car pool with Ralph 20 years ago. I was wondering why he was
late a few times. Seem on the way over to pick me up he would hit a
deer. Which he would then take home and his father would pickle.

As a farmer, I know that I can easily get rid of clover by over-grazing
it. Not that I want too though - it's far cheaper than polluting
fertilizer! Most organic farmers use it in rotation to fix nitrogen.
True that. I sowed crimson clover for several years as a cover crop.
Very pretty plant. Then I studied herbs and and sowed red clover
instead. This year I've broadcast yellow sweet clover as well, mainly
because I think it's pretty.
