Maris Widgeon Heirloom Wheat
A somewhat tall winter type bread wheat. Golden orange grain perfect for breads as well as an all purpose flour. Naturally chokes out weeds because of its 3-4 foot height. Awnless heads bend over and shed rain quite well. Seed can be stored for many years in a cool dry place.
Maris Widgeon is a heritage/heirloom variety of wheat that has traditionally been used for thatching in the UK.
Developed by the Plant Breeding Institute in Cambridgeshire in 1964. The 'Maris' in the name comes from Maris Lane, the address of PBI headquarters in Trumpington, Cambridge
Makes excellent cover for quail and other wildlife.
The best time to plant winter wheat is from mid September through early December. Broadcast seeds over a prepared seedbed or plant in a large pot for small amounts. Keep the bed moist until germination.
