Sow the hordeum

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

Treat the fox­tail bar­ley as a hardy an­nual, sur­face sow­ing it Fe­bru­ary to April and plac­ing in a prop­a­ga­tor for steady warmth. You can also di­rect sow in April or May, or un­der cover in Septem­ber, as you would any other hardy an­nual. Prick out and pot on sev­eral seedlings per pot – to give a more es­tab­lished-look­ing scheme – then plant out af­ter all risk of frost, 23cm (9in) apart. If plants do over­win­ter, comb them through in spring for a general tidy up.
