Hi I planted my rye winter vetch quite late (17th November) very very little has come up. Should I leave the beds free for germination in January or cover the beds? Thanks

Your question doesn't show your planting zone or your purpose for the cover crop, but if you think it will continue to germinate, I would wait for that. It would need to be turned under when it is between 6 to 12 inches tall for use as green manure.
