Episode 16 – Clover

Clover is a common flowering plant all over Ireland, loved by some and despised by others.  Gardeners see clover as a weed.  Farmers know it helps make soils more fertile.  Children suck the sweetness from its flowers.  Bees depend on it as a reliable source of nectar.  Nature File this week looks at how common clover is seen from so many different perspectives.
