Cover Crop

acohan1 added on April 1, 2018 | Answered

Hi: Last fall I planted a cover crop as recommended of winter Rye Grass. The snow has cleared and the rye grass is green and growing. Should it just be plowed under? Is there a danger of it continuing to pop up in my garden? Thanks for your help and advice

Plow-down rye is an annual grass so as long as it doesn't bloom and go to seed, it should not keep going. Usually it is turned under about 3 weeks before planting to get the composting process well on its way.
