Sweetiethe: did you plant a mix, or 100% microclover? This may be my answer!

100% microclover. I saw some people had mixed it, but then I saw a few people commented that they wished they'd done 100% so I went with that. There are mixes available and you may want to see what's recommended where you are, but honestly it just seems like such a smart and ecologically friendly solution.
