The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your very own River Oat Grass!
Also known as Northern Sea Oats, this perennial grass bears lovely ornamental seed heads that look like oats. This native likes a heavier soil where it can grow quickly in the heat of summer.
Growing Northern Sea Oats
# 1 | Direct sow either in late fall or early spring. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting.
# 2 | Press the seed into the surface of the soil, compacting the soil very firmly.
# 3 | Keep the soil saturated until germination. Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. This plant prefers moist soil, and does not do well in drought. It adapts well to various soil types such as sand and clay with adequate moisture.
