How to Grow Ornamental Grasses

Millet and other ornamental grasses are most successful when sown inside using mini growing cells or plugs. A plug tray with 50 to 72 cells is ideal.

Fill the growing cells with a good quality, moist seed compost, fill right to the brim of the cells and flatten out the surface, then spinkle the seed thinly across the surface, sowing 5 to 7 seeds per cell.

Once the grass seedlings are a couple inches tall, or have become root bound in the cell, transplant the plugs into3 inch pots and allow them to grow on again. It is time to plant outside once the pot becomes root-bound.

This method will both increase your success rate and produce healthy, vigorous ornamental grass crops in about half the time of starting them outside.
