    How much seed do I need for 150 sq ft. I live in zone 8 outside of Tacoma. When should I order and when should I plant?

      Does it require acidic soil? Is a layer of Peat Moss enough?

      Hi Deb,
      Sweet woodruff does enjoy a slightly acidic soil. I think peat moss is a good idea. r

      Would this be invasive, or drive out other nearby herbs? I’m looking at it for a permaculture surround for fruit trees, but don’t want it to take over the other herbs. I’m in 6b Utah.

      Hi Angela, that may be too sunny of a location for sweet woodruff–not only would it not drive out other herbs, it might not establish at all. i suggest red clover. Richo
