Heirloom wheat

that is legendary in England

for the quality of its flour for bread.

It was found growing in a hedge in the 1700’s and amazed the farmer who found it by outyielding every wheat of its time. Tall, with excellent straw, too.

BOTANICAL NAME: Triticum aestivum

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Start in flats or broadcast carefully 2 weeks before first frost in fall. If flats, transplant when 6" high, 5" apart. Or if your climate has frozen soil for much of the winter, you may start it up to a month earlier. Will go dormant in winter, then get very active in early spring. Cease watering when 85% of the seed heads are golden and harvest when almost all are. Dry fully before storing. Plants 10 square feet.
