Easy to raise from seed, these seedlings will develop into strong fast-growing clumps of grasses that can be divided and used in multiple locations.

Cold Stratification or Direct Sowing: Recommended. (See Winter Jug Method here)

Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early. Also known as cold stratitication and can be completed anytime of the year by placing seed packs in a cool drawer of a refrigerator for 4-12 weeks to break seed dormancy.

1) Sow direct in a prepared weedfree seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location in small pots outdoors
3) Under lights indoor grow room
4) Bright windowsill with drip tray and propagator cover

I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.

Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.
