Green Manure – Phacelia is a very useful, quick-growing, hardy annual green manure.
Phacelia is particularly good for improving the quality of dry soils although is also suitable for all soil types and can be used as a summer/autumn manure or overwinter from a September sowing for spring digging-in.
The attractive foliage quickly smothers weeds/seeds and its extensive root system improves the soil structure also greatly improving moisture retention and encourages worm activity.
If phacelia is left to flower, it attracts many species of pollinating insects.
