Notes

Seed - used as a whole grain or ground into a flour and used for making bread etc[1][2][3]. Somewhat smaller than the seed of S. cereale but produced abundantly. It is relatively difficult to extract the seed from the glumes by hand[K].

Propagation

Seed - sow March or October in situ and only just cover the seed. Germination should take place within 2 weeks.

If the seed is in short supply, it can be grown in pots in the greenhouse or cold frame in early spring. Only just cover the seed. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots as soon as they are large enough to handle and plant them out in late spring or early summer.

Division in spring. Larger divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions. We have found it best to pot up the smaller divisions and grow them on in a lightly shaded position in a cold frame, planting them out once they are well established in the summer.

Cultivation

Succeeds in most soils but prefers a well-drained light soil in a sunny position[4].

One report says that it requires protection from severe frosts[4], though our experience is that it is hardy in most parts of the country[K]. Occasionally cultivated for its edible seed[5], it is possibly a parent of the cultivated Rye, S. cereale[6]. This species has an excellent potential as a perennial cereal crop in temperate zones. Although the seed is somewhat smaller than the cultivated annual rye, it is produced abundantly, especially from the second year onwards. The plant tillers well, especially in its second and subsequent years, and the ears in selected varieties can be 25cm long[K].

This subspecies is reliably perennial[1].
