We love wheatgrass! Use for wheatgrass, sprouted wheat bread, milling, or short sprouts.
Commercial wheatgrass growers usually prefer hard red spring wheat, since it grows slightly taller than hard red winter wheat.
- Days to Sprout: Sprout 2-3. Grass 8 – 10
- Soak Time: 4-8 hours
- Storage: Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last almost indefinitely.
- 10” x 20” gardening trays (1-inch-tall preferred), 1 with holes + 1 without. Smaller microgreen trays also work well.
- Good quality organic starting soil mix
- Parchment paper or unbleached paper towel,
- Dome lids (clear or black) or plastic sheet
- Organic seed
- Mister bottle, cup measures, garden spray nozzle (optional)
- Scissors or sharp knife
- Soak the Seed
Larger seed such as sunflower, buckwheat, microgreen salad mix, wheat and peas should be washed then soaked in water for 6 – 12 hours prior to seeding. Drain, rinse and drain the seed after soaking.
- Prepare Soil
Add water to top of the bag (or each tray) 12 hours ahead of use until almost fully hydrated. Rehydrate the bag as necessary. If you were to put the soil in your hand and squeeze it, you should not be able to get much more than a drop of water out of it for the perfect moisture content. If you want to mist the seed after putting it on the soil, reduce the water hydration of the bagged soil a bit.
TIP: To check for overwatering, tip the tray to one end. Water should not pool enough to drip out of the tray.
- Fill Trays with Soil
Use a tray with holes. Fill with 3/4-1.5” of soil. The closer to the top of the tray the better aid to air circulation. Use a block or your hand to smooth and flatten the soil without compacting it. The back of a tablespoon or spatula smooths out the valleys. You can wait to put the tray without holes under until after unstacking/uncovering or add it to the bottom now.
TIP: Place a layer or two of paper towel on the bottom of the tray before adding soil for easier cleanup.
- Sow the Seed
Spread the soaked seed evenly over the soil in the tray. The seeding density depends on the stage at which you’re planning to harvest. You should have one layer of seeds, side by side and mostly not overlapping. Spread out any clumps with a spoon or your hands. Sow slightly less seed for 2-3 week microgreens.
- Cover the Seed
Doing away with soil as a seed cover decreases the work and time it takes to grow the greens. If stacking the trays on top of each other, use a cover directly on the seed like parchment paper, a plastic sheet or wet unbleached paper towel layer. When not stacking trays, the seed will need protection from drying out by using a dome/lid. Use a clear dome or an inverted 10 x 20” tray without holes. For smaller trays, use several layers of unbleached paper towels folded onto itself with or without a plastic sheet covering the top.
TIP: Most microgreens will grow taller when you keep the light out at the beginning, but this may make the stem weaker. Most seeds germinate in the light no problem.
- Stack Trays
Stacking helps to quickly force the roots into the soil, provides darkness, promotes even germination/growth. Stack 2-5 filled trays on top of each other with an empty tray on the top of the stack with a weight in it. Check at least once a day to see if the trays need water. Stack for 3-5 days. Sunflowers stay stacked the longest -5 days. Put no holes trays under the soil filled holed trays.
- Expose to Indirect Sunlight, Florescent/LED or Grow Lights.
After 2-5 days, the microgreens should be ready for light. If the microgreens begin to get quite tall and leggy, this is an indication that they may need a bit more light.
- Water the Growing Microgreens
Check the seed once or twice daily and water as needed. The soil should be moist, not wet. Once trays are unstacked, add water from below into the no holes tray as necessary.
Sunflowers, buckwheat, and wheat grass is usually harvested around 9 to 10 days with scissors or a sharp knife. Make sure microgreens are not damp before storing. If needed, you may use a small fan or salad spinner to dry the microgreens before storing in a sealed container in the fridge.
Instead of harvesting all at once, you can start to harvest microgreens as soon as the first two leaves are spread out. Take only what you need for your meal and allow the rest to keep growing or put the tray in the fridge loosely covered and a plastic bag or dome to harvest another day. Water as necessary.
Microgreens make everything better, so have fun with them and add them to your favourite dishes!
- To moisten your bag of soil, add water ahead until almost fully hydrated.
- The roots grow under the soil so it works well to water from below if the tray has holes in it, or open the side of the tray and pour water beside the soil when using flexible plastic trays. Otherwise misting or watering from the top works well too.
- To get the hulls to drop from sunflower, beet, chard and buckwheat leaves cover the tray loosely with clear plastic during the last days of growth. Mist the hulls. This will trap enough moisture to soften the hulls to be easily brushed off by
- Good cleaning practices each growing cycle: Remove debris from trays. Apply soap to a brush and clean all surfaces with suds and firm pressure. Rinse. Sanitize your trays, equipment, tools and surfaces
Soak. Using a tray with drainage holes, rinse enough seed to cover the bottom of the tray. Soak the seed for 4-12 hours. Use a jar with a sprouting lid for soaking if the tray holes are too large. Drain, rinse and drain holding at an angle to remove excess water. Spread the seed evenly on the bottom of the tray and cover with a lid top and bottom or put in plastic bag.
Rinse. Rinse with cold water twice a day, using either a gentle flow from a tap, dipping in a sink, or spraying. Drain thoroughly.
Grow. The roots will form a mat from which the microgreens will emerge. At that point, put in indirect sunlight, florescent/LED lights or grow lights. The watering is then easy: fill the container 1 cm deep with water and allow to sit for a few seconds in the water and then tilt on an angle to decant the water until only some moisture is remaining in the root area. Continue to rinse twice a day as described above.
Typically, wheatgrass grown without soil is harvested at 7-10 days. Harvest grass using scissors or knife.

Since I discovered this website, I’ve been buying wheat grass seeds for my cat, who absolutely loves to eat it. Usually, he is chomping away at it when it’s barely sprouting out of the ground so I now have to keep it hidden from him until it’s at least 3-4 inches tall before I give it to him. It grows very quickly. I usually grow it in a sprout tray for about 2 – 3 days, then I transplant the little seedlings into a pot of indoor potting mix. It really sprouts quickly after that. Within 5-6 days, the sprouts are 1-2 inches tall. Great seeds!

Germination Ã prÃ¨s de 100%, beaucoup de vitalitÃ© et une dÃ©licieuse saveur en jus.
Happy to say the wheat sprouted well and grew well. Be aware that this is not always the case.
I used buy 5 kg at a time, but sometimes received wheat that did not sprout well and as a result
grew sparse looking grass. I regularly drink wheat grass juice and have grown wheat grass successfully for over a year now. After I wasted 5kg of seeds that were not good, I decided to
only buy in small amounts so that there will would less waste if the seeds are not good.
I’m not eating this product. It is for my cats, who love it, especially in the winter when they can’t get grass outside. It grows very quickly and I am happy to feed my cats pesticide free grass.
Those little seeds will sprout at a rate of almost 100%. Gives a nice and light juice, very sweet.
I began growing wheatgrass for juicing purposes and have been using Mumm’s for a few months now. I find the wheat berries are very good quality, provide even growth and the best of all, no mold growth, so very pleased with this organic product. I had a few questions for them and they responded and answered all queries via email promptly – great customer service. I will continue to order from this company for sure!
First time trying these out, and am quite happy. Have successfully sprouted the grass and juiced it and it’s delicious! Another great product from Mumm’s.
I have tried different wheat berries in the past and find that mumms wheatberries give me the best growth. It is tall, lush, green and I don’t have any mold problems. I did have some fruit flies but placed a fan a few feet away on low. They don’t like it when the grass Russells back-and-forth and they simply go away. The taste of the juice is the light and sweet. Nothing like the taste of the shots” you get from some juice bars””
Great germination, looking at tender shoots in 5 days! I have had consistent positive results with these seeds. Thanks Mumms!
I ordered these seeds two years ago and kept them in a cool dark place, only this year did I start using them, they still grow really good and it is the sweetest tasting wheat grass I have ever tasted. I also really like the company and how much pride they take in there seeds all the way to quick and friendly service, with allot of information for beginners on how to get started growing your own wheat grass and sprouts. Even though it took me two years to start growing them, this is the only company I will ever get my seeds from, not only are they organic, there also Canadian.
I was very impressed with the selection offered. Ordering was easy and I was happy that the delivery was quick. I was almost hesitant to put in an order considering the weight, however, the postage rate was excellent. The product was exactly as described. Fast germination and nice, sweet taste. I will order from here again!
this wheat grass is better and sweeter than the kind they sell at Booster Juice and is easy and quick to grow. I love it! and the company is great and fast delivery, I have purchase other kinds of seeds and they have the best in my opinion.
This is my first time ordering from Mumm’s and I was very pleased with how quickly the order arrived and the quality of the seeds. I definitely plan to order more soon.
I bought this for my cats, who are not interested at all. But The dogs like it cut up into small bits in their wet food. Like any other seeds we buy from Mumms, the germination rate is excellent.
We really appreciate the customer service.
Craig Holland –
I am so glad I found this website. I sprouted my first tray of this wheatgrass and it looks so healthy. I mean, I used to buy organic non gmo seeds before but they were way too expensive. I am so pleased.
Bought these wheat berries for making wheatgrass juice and i am very happy with my purchase. Beautiful healthy wheatgrass no moulding issues, beautiful colour couldn’t be happier thanks
Excellent product, grows very well within days. We use its juice a sweeter in a traditional Persian pudding.
Received in great shape, in a timely manner. Just sprouting these little gems now!
A basic necessity for indoor cats.
Victor Dupree –
I have used Mumm’s for three years to grow my wheatgrass and I have been very satisfied with it. The flavour of the wheatgrass has a distinctive pleasant taste like the sweet taste wheatgrass is supposed to have. I highly recommend your product.
Yu Chiu –
Bought 2 kg of hard red wheat from Mumm’s for juicing purposes. I find the quickest and best way to grow the wheat grass is on a pot of soil. Just need to keep the soil most at all times. The blades are much greener, thicker and taller and you don’t waste a lot of water. It is a bit messy to make the juice from the wheat grass but the health benefit is worth every penny and effort. I will definitely buy more seeds from Mumm’s in the near future.
Been buying from Mum’s for a couple of years – wheat berries are excellent quality no mold. The service is very good and delivery is fast. Thank you Mum’s for your great service!!!
The order took a long time to arrive but the wheat grass is growing very well!
Very impressed with the quality of the seeds. Seeds started sprouting after 1 day of soaking and yielded a lush sprouting of wheat grass. Juice was very sweet.
Growing one to two trays a week. Easy to grow. Looks amazing. Juicing every morning. For best regrowth, cut when no more than 4 inch tall. Excellent seeds!!

germe bien, pousse bien, produit un bon jus de blÃ©, j’en suis entiÃ¨rement satisfait
makes great wheatgrass shots Love it!
This is the first time I order this product. It is used to create maltose. It works as I expect but the color of the maltose is a little bit dark.
Martine Leclerc –
I’m really satisfied of this product for the result of sprouting for juice.
Very pleased with germination, and the wheatgrass produced. Nice to have a Cdn product too. I have to fight my cats to keep them out of it while it’s sprouting. I purchased both the hard red spring wheat and the soft white winter, 1kg each.
My previous order was perfect! This time i am not sure if it starts sprouting at all.
I just purchased my 3rd 5KG bag of the year and I couldn’t be happier. Growing my own fresh wheatgrass is simply doing wonders for my health and wellbeing and I’ve been 100% satisfied with these seeds. Super easy to grow hydroponically and I typically cut them between 10-14 days (14 days in winter when temperatures are colder).
Depuis dÃ©jÃ 25 ans Je pais pousser de l’herbe de blÃ© afin d’avoir une source de chlorophylle fraÃ®che pour les mois d’hiver. Durant toutes ces annÃ©es ma source d’approvisionnement a Ã©tÃ© Mumm’s. Une seule fois durant cette longue pÃ©riode ai-je eu un 5kg dont le taux de germination laissait Ã dÃ©sirer, j’ai pris des photos des germinations Ã©parses que j’ai fait parvenir Ã Mumm’s et mon 5kg a Ã©tÃ© remplacÃ©. Par ailleurs je suis trÃ¨s satisfaite de la diversitÃ© des produits offerts et du service Ã la clientÃ¨le.
i bought a kilo of these and they kept extremely well and had beautifull growth
love this stuff, my chickens and horses love it. It goes a long way. Very sweet and good, tastes great on a sandwich too
Very good quality.
I was buying seeds at the health food store and only getting a 30% germination rate at best which was leaving alot of mould in my trays.. After thinking i was doing something wrong i took a chance and ordered some of these seeds from here and low and behold i had close to 100% germination with zero mould in my trays and very healthy looking vibrant grass. Thanks guys! I will be ordering more in the future!
Kelly from Niagara –
I placed my order and received the shipment in the same week. The grains are healthy and sprout quickly. I make my own sprouted flour sourdough bread and the taste is superior to any other product I’ve tried. **Highly recommended**
TrÃ¨s satisfaite du rendement pousse bien en 10 jours mais plus de jus en 12 jour.
Gout lÃ©gÃ¨rement sucrÃ© .
Les semences germe trÃ¨s bien ,expÃ©dition rapide.
Seeds germinated quickly and produced grass that my cats really love.

I bought this product for my two cats.
They like it because they enjoy nibbling on fresh grass year round.
I like it because it is very easy to grow, it grows quickly, and there is no mess.
Leigh La Chablis –
I have been purchasing this product for a while now. I love its taste and appearance; I heartily recommend it!
I ordered this product when my local pet store stopped stocking cat grass seed”. My cats don’t seem as keen on this grass yet but they are still getting used to it. It is very easy to grow and you get a good quantity for the price.”
Liz Archer –
Absolutely love these seeds! The grass is vibrant and sweet – it is even beautiful to look at let alone eat!
This wheat sprouts very well. I keep it in mason jars in the freezer and have found it to produce well even at the end of the supply.
The quality is very good. It didn’t occur any mold during growing wheat grass. We will buy again.
The last batch of wheat I received had a lot of wild oats in it. Usually the wheat is quite clean.
Great seeds, well shipped, superb service as usual. Glad to buy from an awesome Canadian company.
I now have ordered hard red wheat a number of times and will continue to do so. The order is filled and shipped quickly. Excellent germination. I am pleased with products and service.
This is my first time growing wheat grass. My seeds arrive on time and I am loving the wheat grass. Can’t wait to try other seeds in the near future. Great web site..easy to order from.
Wow these seeds sprouted in great time and all the seeds sprouted and at the same time.
I was buying from a local hydroponic outlet and I was getting sparse growth and more white mold than i thought I should have. I decided to buy Mumm’s seeds. One of the main reason I did not buy from Mumm’s was that I thought I could not wait and wanted the seeds quickly, I did not want to wait for shipping but Mumm’s proved me wrong it only took 3 days which was quicker than me taking my time and driving around to different locations and still not knowing what I was getting. Once I used Mumm’s seeds and got a great lush crop with little mold i was hooked not to mention all of the resources Mumm’s has on their website, absolutely invaluable. The kicker for all concerned is that they are less expensive and at Canadian dollars let’s keep our money growing Canadian firms. Keep up the great work. thanks Mumm’s
Philip G Mainhood –
I’m not one for wheat grass, but i admit I enjoyed this, I juiced it for my wife and myself, also i cut it up into my salad, it was great.
I’ve tried other wheat grasses before and this one by far was the best. Very high germination rate, not fussy about temperature and goes from sprout to grass quickly.
Danielle Paquet –
We have been ordering from Mumm’s for the past nine years and are always satified with the product and the Customer services. We strongly recommand Mumm’s.
Grows beautifully, tastes exactly how nice wheat sprouts should taste!
Rocky’s Mom –
I have an 12 year old foster dog in hospice care with cancer that I have on the ‘dog’ keto diet. A small percentage of his diet (2%) is in the form of carbs, usually broccoli. I switched it up with a variety of sprouts, broccoli, wheat grass and alfalfa thinking that he’d gain greater benefits. He’s on a variety of holistic/natural protocols (rather than the standard cancer treatments) and I’m not sure which (or all) get the credit but he was only given a couple of weeks back in December of 2017. We’re 7.5 months past that now and he’s in better condition now than he was back in December. At his last vet visit I was told that he’ll likely be around for quite a while”. :)”
Been purchasing this product from Mumms for over a decade now. The best what grass seeds out there. Sprout well, grows fast and tall, great flavour
sylvie tremblay –
The seed germinate very well. The juice was very good…Thank you
Anna U –
Love this wheat for sprouting and growing wheatgrass for juicing. It sprouts and grows excellently and the juice is awesome. I love these kernels and will be buying in the future only from Mumm’s: the delivery was fast and the seeds are non-gmo and organic. I do recommend these seeds higly for sprouting and growing wheatgrass.
100% germination, even growth, great results.
CAROLE LAVOIE –
I really appreciate the new availability of larger weight formats and the adjusted lower prices per Kg that it brings.
New to Green –
Purchased this product to start juicing my own wheatgrass, it sprouted easily in a large jar in 2 days. Transferred to the 3pce tray set with organic soil and I had a lovely crop of wheatgrass with minimal fuss. Juicing was a bit difficult, so I dehydrated and powdered. Great flavour. Just purchased a 5kg bag of seed to keep me in wheatgrass for months to come 🙂
Mumms seeds are the best. These grow quickly and have a high rate of germination. My cats love it and it is miles cheaper to buy the seeds than to buy the grass already grown.
Iâ€™m very happy with the berries. Clean, only very small percentage of broken, damaged ones.
Sprouted nicely in two day.
Itâ€™s not easy for a city girl to find milling wheat berries online. In most cases shipping cost is twice of cost of berries. I was lucky to stumble on this lot .
Very happy with the grains…
Great service, great product at a great price. I grow it for my cat and she absolutely loves it.
Je suis trÃ¨s satisfaite de tous les graines Ã germer que jâ€™achÃ¨te Chez Mummâ€™ seeds.
Jâ€™ai fait plusieurs commandes depuis plusieurs annÃ©es et elles sont toujours de top qualitÃ©.
De plus, pour le Canada les frais de transport sont gratuits pour 25$ dâ€™achat et plus câ€™est Fantastique.

Fine wheatgrass with this variety.
This is the best quality/value for wheat grass seeds that we found. Canadian products are the best ! We do juice and spouting seeds for salad. The taste is fabulous and the plants are easy to grow. We will bought from Mumm’s again : )
Like i said amazing quality grains. Spout well!! The only thing that wasn’t great was the packaging. I understand when on is shipping 25kg you ship it in its bag, not in a package. That’s OK BUT the postal code fell off the address somewhere, was not well sealed or well taped. This led to my wheat arriving about two weeks later trhan everytihng else. I watched it make it to Toronto (almost here) then get re-routed back west (wriong direction) then it didn’t move for a week or two… Once here, it’s great. But it toook crazy time to get here because the address was not properly affixed. Aside from that you rock!!!
I came to know Mumm’s from a YouTuber who was talking about microgreens. I became interested and ordered the Wheat, Hard Red Spring plus 2 other seed products. The wheatgrass is very easy to grow and the juice is very tasty. I am very pleased with this product.
Joanne Corriveau –
Great Seeds. They produce a very healthy green grass.
Bought the Hard Red Spring wheat in small and large batches. No problems at all using a sprouting tray. Great quality and flavour.
There are many ways to consume this product and it stores very well for a really long time. Although a long time is not probably needed given the situation we are currently in with these fragile Just In Time delivery processes, the world’s food cycle is hanging by a thin wire.
Be prepared folks! Physically, but more importantly spiritually.
