Re: Where do you purchase barleygrass seed

When growing Grass: You really MUST Pre-Sprout it before planting.

Put seed* into a bowl or your Sprouter.
Add 2-3 times as much cool (60-70 degree) water.
Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all.
Allow seeds to Soak for 8-12 hours.

Empty the seeds into your sprouter if necessary.
Drain off the soak water.

Rinse thoroughly with cool (60-70°) water
and Drain thoroughly.

Set anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses.

Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours.
And, perhaps one more...
Rinse and Drain in 8-12 hours.
And, conceivably one more...
Rinse and Drain in 8-12 hours.

The goal is to have a small root before planting.

When most of the seeds have sprouted tiny (1/16-1/8 inch) roots it is time to plant. This is typically after just 2-3 Rinse and Drain cycles.
