Reed canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea)

                         Reed canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea)


Sowed in late Summer 2014 and doing nicely.

Surface sow onto moist compost/vermiculite/perlite (1:1:1), mist and cover with cling film.Took about 2 weeks to germinate and has been going crazy ever since.Dies down over winter and will happily survive the harshest of UK conditions outside.When its dies down over winter, I usually flame it to burn the stubble. Seems to like this, as it shows.If we put this into the ground it would reach 2-3 meters in height, but as we ship these all over the world we keep them small, so you can plant them.

 Leaves of Reed canary grass contain DMT, 5 MeO DMT and related compounds. Levels of beta carbolines and hordenine have also been reported.

They are invasive, so dont plant them anywhere that this may cause problems.
