Yo...I get a few friends and skim the land with field rakes and broadcast in/around February...when the ground can be worked. I'm in zone 7, SC. Clover enjoys cool over hot, so it germinates just fine, and then really takes off come April. It flowers in mid-may (which mine has lived up to...) Good luck bro. All of them can go in, by the way.
@LivingWind--what time of year can you sow it? and do you sow the all the seeds at the same time?

I'm glad you use natives first - but yes, they are often hard to find. In my region (Central Texas), many natives are probably still among the best adapted to changing environmental conditions. My biggest problem with natives is they are often inedible or if edible, yucky tasting.
