When to plant:

How to grow:

Place a shallow seed tray with drainage holes on a tray or plate. Place approx. 25mm (1”) of dampened potting mix in the bottom of the tray and firm down gently. Sprinkle seeds evenly on the surface, with the grains touching one another. Cover with a fine layer of potting mix.

Place on a well lit windowsill but out of direct sunlight. Keep moist at all times.

 

Harvest:

when about 10-20cm tall by cutting with scissors 12mm above the soil. The harvested Rye Grass is now ready to be chewed, juiced or stored. A second round of Rye Grass will grow in about a week. After the second harvest from the same pot, remove all the soil in the pot onto a newspaper, break up all the roots and mix them with the soil. Add a bit of fertiliser to rejuvenate the soil and it is ready for a fresh sowing of Rye. After a few sowings replace the soil with fresh potting mix.
