A legume, hairy vetch is the ideal cover crop for fixing nitrogen from the air into the soil through a relationship with rhizobium bacteria that attaches to its roots. Cut down in mid to late spring immediately after flowering. You can also sow in late summer and leave it in place all winter long. Vigorous and cold hardy, hairy vetch will continue growth in the spring if it puts on enough growth in the fall. Sow evenly onto soil surface and rake in. Keep moist until growth starts. Cut it down the following spring after flowering. Using hairy vetch as a fall cover crop means you will protect your soil from erosion during the winter.
