Hi,
I sowed my clover lawn about 5 or 6 weeks ago, it's quite long now

Do you know when it should have it's first cut please?

Thank you, 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀

I would leave it as it is just now, like forest flame has said.

I agree. Don't forget that clover is a nitrogen fixer. Remove all the clippings, and definitely don't feed.
