Timothy is a cultivar of common Timothy. Timothy is a relatively short-lived, cool-season perennial that grows in stools or clumps and has a shallow, compact, and fibrous root system It is used primarily for hay but is also used for pasture and silage. It is palatable and nutritious. It makes a great companion grass for alfalfa, trefoil, or clover. Timothy can be used with legumes and/or other grasses in a mix for cover purposes, filter strips, waterways, and other critical area applications. Timothy is also commonly found in wildlife mixtures for nesting, brood cover, and escape. Timothy is adapted to a cool and humid climate. Timothy thrives best in rich, moist bottomlands and in finer textured soils, such as clay loams. It does not do well in coarser soils. Performs best with a pH between 5.5 to 7.0. Tolerant to somewhat poorly drained soils, but will not tolerate wet soils, or soils prone to standing water. Does not tolerate drought or prolonged high temperatures. Timothy stands become weak under close and continuous grazing Seeding depth of timothy should be 1/2 inch. A firm, weed-free seedbed is a key to a successful planting. Common seeding rates are 8 to 10 lbs. per acre when seeded alone, and 4 to 6 lbs. per acre when seeded in mixtures. Best when purchased from The Dirty Gardener
