Sweet Alyssum Cover Crops

Lobularia maritima. The fast growth of this annual helps to smother weeds. At the same time, its tiny flower clusters attract beneficial predatory insects that will combat pest species throughout summer. The purpose of this cover crop is not to build soil as much as to generally benefit the garden. 

  • Smothers weeds
  • Attracts beneficial insects
  • Plant between vegetable rows
  • Very easy to control
  • Open-pollinated seeds
