Cats love the tender shoots of this rapidly growing grass. Keep a bowl indoors and pamper your pet. Cut when 5-7cm/2-3in long to prevent coarseness.
Sow indoors at any time. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for growing these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20Â°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 3-5 days. Place somewhere accessible to cats and they will enjoy helping themselves to the grass when required. Cut when 5-8cm tall to encourage soft, fresh, new leaves. It is best to sow little and often. Harvest all year round.
