Set : Fine holes + Holding Tray ( seeds are not included )
Grow and harvest your own regular supply of WheatGrass or Barley on your own kitchen windowsill.
Wheatgrass is hailed as one of Nature’s Super Foods that has multiple health benefits from detoxifying the body to boosting the immune system. Very high in multiple vitamins, minerals, beta carotene and amino acids. Looking after your health has never been easier.
When to plant: Plant Wheatgrass / Barley sprouts seeds all year round as required.
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 15-20cm (6-8”) tall by cutting with scissors 12mm (1/2”) above the soil. The harvested Wheatgrass / Barley is now ready to be chewed, juiced or stored. A second round of Wheatgrass / Barley 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 wheat. After a few sowings replace the soil with fresh potting mix.
