Wheatgrass Au (Demeter). Here showing growing in 1 of our rectangular trays where the inner grill section which holds the growing medium and wheatgrass is elevated above the water reservoir below. The trick with limiting mould, which is the largest problem with growing wheatgrass, is to keep the seed husk dry. So this configuration allows the roots to extend into a thin layer of water but the top layer of growing medium remains dry. Click to hide

Wheat seed - the covering of white powder that you see on top of the seeds is what we add to reduce the possibility of the seeds becoming infested with weevils, this can be a common problem with organic wheat seed which is not sprayed with chemicals to reduce this problem. The white powder is Diatomaceous Earth, this is crushed prehistoric shell powder, apart from being rich in silica and other trace elements it also has razor sharp edges at a microscopic level which destroys weevils if they try to walk through it.

Growing Wheat Grass, this is the process that I use, firstly in the top left you see where I have pre-germinated the wheat for 1 or 2 days, i.e soaking overnight in probiotic nutrients to begin with then rinsing clean, allow to drain for a day and then soaking again in probiotic nutrients for half an hour the next day rinsing clean leaving to drain for another day then spreading it on the growing medium. What this does is cut down the time that the seed is laying stationary in a moist environment with the possibility of developing mould. After spreading the seed on the growing medium gently press the seed into the growing medium and give a strong spray. When the roots have penetrated the growing medium and into the reservoir below then add the lifters on the side which will create an air gap allowing the top layer of seed and growing medium to remain dry while the bottom tips of the roots contact the nutrient solution.

Growing Wheatgrass Method Using Paper Towel, this is the same procedure as mentioned in the previous slide, the only difference is it is harder to keep the paper towel free of moisture so mould is more likely to develop, the trick here is just to keep an eye on it and if there is a sign of mould just cover the mould with a layer of dolomite (dolomite is very alkaline and will retard the development of the mould).

Wheatgrass and Fenugreek, fenugreek is not so good to grow as a Microgreen because the seed husk sticks to the leaf however it is a very powerful cleansing and healing herb, so mixing it with wheatgrass which is what you're going to juice is an excellent way to get the best of both of these herbs. Here shown groaning in our rectangular tray, in this case with the grill using coconut fibre. Click to hide

Wheatgrass in Rectangular & Round trays, with or without a grill on 1 of our stands next to a sunny window. Notice the rectangular trays are sitting on top of the rectangular tray, you would use this method if you wanted to just use one round tray each day and then replant. Click to hide

Wheat Org.

Organic Wheat (Au) for Wheatgrass sprouting. May contain Diatomaceous Earth (crushed shell powder) to control insects.

Clear
SKU: N/A Category:

Product Info.

Organic wheat has been grown without artificial fertilisers and the seeds have not been sprayed, ideal for growing wheatgrass for juicing, or can be used for making bread etc.
In the picture we see wheatgrass being grown in a rectangular trays with white grill (120 mls), shallow round tray, with or without grill (producing about 40mls of juice) and a shallow rectangular tray, with or without grill (100mls), using a loose, light weight, easily spread coconut fibre with the addition of liquid seaweed. When purchased with one of our growing containers we supply detailed instructions on how to get the best results.
Coco fibre is the cheapest however it does require an extra process where you turn a compressed block into loose spreadable coconut fibre, I tend to now just use the vermiculite, as is basically simpler.
Another time-saving suggestion is rather than doing it every day which can be a bit of a grind if you don’t have the time, is to do 6 or more trays in one go and then reduce them at the one time, at the same time juice a kilo of lemons mix them together and makes ice blocks and start your day with this warm drink.
