Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

To extend the season it is advisable to sow the seeds in succession indoors or direct. If successional direct sowings are not possible sprinkle the seeds on the surface of damp compost, in preferably 10 - 15 cm biodegradable pots as the plants do not like their roots being disturbed.
Lightly cover the seeds with compost or vermiculite.
Place early sowings in a propagator or a clear polythene bag and seal. Germinate at the temperature suggested above. Later sowings can be left to germinate in a cold frame.
Once germination has started remove from the bag or propagator and place in a well lit area with a cooler temperature, a greenhouse or cold frame is ideal. Protect early sowings from frost.
Plant out when all risk of frost has passed.
Harden off over 7 - 10 days before planting out.

Direct Sowing

In March to April sow the seeds direct in a well prepared seed bed where the decorative grass is to grow in rows 25 - 30 cm apart. The soil should have a fine tilth.
Cover the seeds with soil and water well.
Thin out the seedlings when large enough to handle to 25 - 30 cm apart.
To extend the season it is advisable to sow the seeds in succession, either indoors or direct.

Growing On

Water the young grass well until established.
A single top dressing of a general fertilizer will help to improve the performance of the grass.
Avoid over feeding the grass however as this may affect the quality of the flowers.
Water well in dry conditions.


To dry, cut the flowers once they have opened, tie in bundles and hang upside down in a dry location with good ventilation.
