Besides beetroot for sugar, clover and sainfoin are grown, little or no barley, and neither turnips nor mangel-wurzel.
The time to cut it is, as with clover and sainfoin, when it is in early flower.
sainfoin is not generally supposed to cover grass, but there are generally exceptions.
sainfoin, as already intimated, is perennial in its habit of growth.
The sainfoin has given a fine crop of the finest sort of hay in the world, and, this year, without a drop of wet.
A field of sainfoin in June, with its glorious blossoms of pink, is one of the prettiest sights in all creation.
It feeds on the wild heartsease, also on sainfoin and borage.
sainfoin (Onobrychis sativa) is a perennial, leguminous, clover-like forage plant of the bean family.
sainfoin is native throughout the whole of Central Europe and over much of Siberia.
It has been found more difficult to get a good stand of sainfoin plants than of other varieties of the clover family.
