Treat your cat to his own supply of fresh, clean grass all year round. Our Cat Grass is a variety of Barley, Hordeum vulgare 'Variegata', which provides vitamins and fibre in your cat's diet and keeps them from chewing on your prized houseplants. This quick growing perennial grass reaches 15cm (6") in just 6 weeks - perfect for the impatient feline! Grow it in small batches for a constant supply. If you have a few seed to spare, Hordeum also makes an attractive ornamental grass for the perennial border. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").


1 packet (100 seeds) (52457)

Grow Cat Grass all year round, in the greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill. Sow on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag, maintaining a temperature of 18-24C (65-75F) until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. If grown indoors solely as a cat treat, keep things clean by sowing small batches of seed in pure vermiculite.Once germinated, grow seedlings on in cooler conditions until they reach a height of 15cm (6") before making them available to your cat.

Grow Hordeum plants in small pots from successive sowings. Once used, replace the chewed plants with a fresh pot of seedlings to provide a constant supply. Later in the season, cut back any taller growth to promote fresh new re-growth. If planted outdoors as an ornamental grass, grow in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
