Rescue Mixes

Every grower of game covers has experienced the frustration of a failed crop, for any number of reasons. This can be a very serious problem for the shoot and so a number of different crops have been found to provide cover in a hurry. Don’t disregard the cause of your original failure as it may need to be rectified before you replant.
