Grow Your Own Cat Grass
Chewing on grass is a normal activity for outdoor cats. It is thought that it may provide additional vitamins and minerals, help with digestion and is helpful in expelling fur balls.
Cat Grass (Dactylis glomerata) is also known as orchard grass or cock’s-foot grass and the lush growing shoots are very attractive to cats (as well as rabbits and guinea pigs) for eating, sitting and lying on.
This is especially good to grow for indoor cats or if your cat is home bound for a while as they will appreciate the addition of cat grass to their diet.
Grow in well-drained potting mix on a well - lit window sill.
Or the seeds can be sown directly onto a patch of ground.
Once the shoots are about 7cm long, you can let your cat nibble or roll on them.
Cat grass is easy to grow and a treat for your cat!
Our seeds have been produced and hand packed in England.
