How to Plant BLUE-EYED GRASS Seeds
Sow seed in cell packs or 2 inch
pots, press into soil and barely

germination is usually within 5
weeks. If not, place container
inside a zip-lock bag and place
in the refrigerator for 3 weeks.
Return to 70-75° F. until germination occurs. Transplant into the
garden 6-12 inches apart.
