Winter Wheat Heirloom
Garden Starter Pack
A very versatile, delicious and nutritious 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 wheat.
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.
Gives good yields in poor soils.
Plant it about 1/4" deep, in well drained soil a few weeks before first frost. It will take 120 days to have nicely developed heads, harvest when seeds no longer have a milky appearance when cut open (when grain is good and dry)
- Seed can be stored for many years in a cool dry place.
- Makes excellent cover for quail and other wildlife.
We thank you for your support of rare and naturally grown seeds!
