The Complete Guide to Growing and Using Wheatgrass: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply
Wheatgrass, that simple green plant you see growing above the counter in your favorite smoothie shops, is one of the most versatile, intrinsically useful vegetable matters available to you. It can be blended into almost anything, grows in any temperate or warm climate, and is chock full of so many vitamins and fiber that it can take the place of up to two or three servings of vegetables every day if used properly. More and more people are taking advantage of this highly useful plant and growing it themselves, but for many, the lack of instruction and direction can lead to frustration and confusion over how the plant is supposed to be grown and what it needs to thrive.
