I seeded a growing area with clover about the first of October. It has come up but is not big. I sowed too late but wanted to get some in the ground. It is planted in bare ground that I want to mulch with unshredded maple leaves. My question is this:
If I mulch with leaves now will it kill the young white clover plants or will they go dormant and start growing again in the spring when I rake the leaves aside to expose them ? I don't want to leave the bare ground bare over the winter. I suppose if it does kill the immature clovers I can just reseed and have all summer for the clover to establish itself. Any ideas?
