How to Grow Wheatgrass

  • Wheatgrass and other sprouting seeds are becoming more and more popular as people’s awareness of the benefits of such food grows
  • Wheatgrass is considered a superfood thanks to its high levels of beneficial proteins which are essential building blocks as well as high levels of vitamins including A, B, C, E, l and K
  • Ideally a quick shot of wheatgrass should be consumed every morning to see its benefits
  • The best way to consume wheatgrass is fresh, straight from the plant!

Below is a guide on how to grow your own wheatgrass. The process is really simple and really fast.

  • Choose the correct seeds. Wheatgrass seeds can be bought online at thegardenshop.ie and in health food stores
  • Wheatgrass is also known as Hard Red Winter Wheat or Triticum Aestivum
  • Choose the right trays and growing medium
  • At thegardenshop.ie we sell all you need to grow wheatgrass
  • Really all you need is a small tray, about 30 x 40cm
  • The tray must be at least 7cm in depth and will need drainage holes in the base
  • Most soil based composts will work fine
  • At thegardenshop.ie we use John Innes No.3

How to Grow

  • One tray of 30 x 40cm will grow about 500grams of seeds. This will be sufficient for 2 weeks of wheatgrass shots
  • Start by adding your soil or compost to the tray
  • Lightly soak the soil and then spread your seeds out over the surface of the soil
  • The seeds should cover the surface of the soil but be spaced out just enough so that they are not overlapping
  • Sprinkle a fine layer of soil over the seeds and gently press down with your hand

Caring For Your Wheatgrass

  • Position the tray on a windowsill
  • In Summer, position the tray in partial shade, in Winter position in full sun
  • Water your trays every morning. Water the tray well, until water begins to drain from the base of the tray
  • Wheatgrass will take between 10 to 14 days to mature. Once the grass reaches about 15cm in height you can begin the harvest
  • To harvest, simply cut the grass approx. 1” above soil level
  • Only harvest what you need and once you begin harvesting your first tray you should start to sow a second tray to ensure you have a continual supply of wheatgrass to harvest
