I was wanting to try some oilseed radish and clover mixes to bust it up and add organic material, but I am afraid that they won't germinate on top of the ground. I have been looking into seed drills, but I would prefer not to have to invest in a tool that I should only have to use once or twice. Any other ideas? Will the seeds germinate better if I cover them with straw or something similar?
