How about shady areasContributors to this thread:
I have a patch in one of my plots that gets shaded by a couple big oaks. Usually I have some clover there that will grow but it is sparse.... I wish I could plant some peas, beans or something else but figure EVERYTHING needs sun....
Anyhow, any suggestions? No big deal. Its just a 50' x 30' patch out of my whole plot but I wanted to experiment here. Ha
It’s not just the shade, the roots on them oaks are taking up all the water in that area.
Not only that - Oaks have a very acidic system that will just about kill anything below it but moss. I've tried about everything and if it weren't for them being nice acorn producers, I would make firewood out of them.
Yes, all of the above.
I assume walnut trees are even harder to plant close too. Leaves are sparse so shade is less a problem than oaks but walnut husk are extra acidic? Any food plot compatible with walnuts.
Better stay out of those shady areas, you might get mugged or raped or killed. Didn't your momma teach you no better?
Ha Scrappy, well a few deer have met their end in that spot... LOL
Try giving winter rye and oats a go. I seem to have pretty good luck with it in some shady areas and deer love it.
Lime around trees. Won’t hurt them.
Newsflash...Oaks produce acorns, leave it be and just friggin hunt
