Where do you usually get your seed at, GI?

This post needs to be on the "wildlife Habitat" forum. This is the second one you have posted here.

Near Tupelo or Amory

Amory at Beckers
Tupelo at Scruggs
If local I usually get it at Farmers supply in Bentonia

What should I expect to see at the heat of the summer? I planned pretty extensively for soil test, disking, seeding and cultipacking in the fall. I planted a mix of Landino, Arrowleaf and Ball which grew a beautiful carpet all winter. In the first week of March, I fertilized with 0-20-20 and within 2 weeks, the plots exploded. After that, I sprayed with Poast Plus which took care of the unwanted grasses. My plots were about 12" deep so I cut them back to about 7". They look spectacular and based on camera surveys, the deer and turkeys are loving it. All is good.
However, being that this is new to me, and being that I read that these varieties of clover do not particularly do well in the heat of the summer, what can I expect to see in July and August? Will they just wilt and die? I understand that they will re seed themselves but do I mow then lightly disk or do I just de thatch and fertilize in prep for fall?
Thanks
