Yamhill Soft White Winter Wheat Grain
Garden Starter Pack
All sales are final
Beardless, cold tolerant winter variety
A very dependable, versatile, delicious and nutritious cool weather flour grain. Open pollinated heirloom. All Natural NON GMO. Does better on wet soil than other varieties. 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. Let dry for use as a flour for buscuits, gravies and sauces, and cakes. Great milling quality!
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.
