    Secale cereale
    Garden Starter Pack 

    A very versatile, delicious and nutritious cool weather cereal grain. Open pollinated heirloom. All Natural NON GMO. A cool weather grain traditionally cultivated in late summer - fall to germinate overwinter to revitalize poor soils with nitrogen, while its roots breakup compacted soils. Use as an all purpose flour grain. Hardy to -30 F. Let dry for use as a flour, rye bread, beer or fodder.

    Our starter packs are intended for the home gardener that wants to try growing something different and give grain growing a try. Can be grown in the garden direct sow in the late fall or as a container grown wheat. Winter wheat produces a higher yield than spring sown wheat varieties. Many use stems in flower arrangements.
