Timothy – is a tall grass with a characteristic inflorescence in the shape of a cylindrical clustered bell. Perennial – can grow up to 6 years in one place. Forage sedges are classified as late bell grasses. Hay is cut as soon as it blooms, because after flowering the stems quickly become “woody” and the quality of the hay deteriorates.
Use: grown in mixtures with clover for silage and hay, as it is more difficult to re-grow and is not resistant to grazing in pastures.
Cultivation features: suitable for cultivation in almost all soils, except for very dry and sandy soils. In drier and lighter soils with a mechanical composition, it grows poorly or disappears. It can grow in neutral or slightly acidic conditions, it is not afraid of shading – it tolerates growing among more intensively growing grasses.
