How to grow Wheatgrass

  • Weigh out the seed (wheat or barley) quantity required. 3- 4 seeds per cm2 are a minimum to get good, dense growth of wheatgrass.
  • Our large growing trays have dimensions of 50cm x 32cm and require appr. 100g of wheat seeds per sowing.
  • Fill a seed tray with 4 – 6 cms quality (ideally certified organic) compost.  Water the compost generously and leave to drain for 30 minutes.
  • Spread the wheat seeds over the soil – about 3-4 seeds per cm2. The seeds should be touching each other but not overlapping.
  • Lightly sprinkle (sieve) compost over the seeds to cover them.
  • Keep the trays in indirect sunlight in a not too warm area. Continue watering – very sparingly - as needed. Liquid seaweed can be added to the water to feed the plants.
  • After 7 – 10 days ( summer) or 10 – 14 days ( winter) the wheatgrass will be tall enough (15 – 20cm) for harvesting and juicing.
