Different Ways to Grow Oriental Greens Seeds

Oriental greens are a great source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants. The oval shaped seed is also known as " Papers" or "Sharts" and is commonly referred to as grass in some regions. They are grown in tropical and subtropical areas from Africa to the Middle East and also from China to Europe. They are highly beneficial as a complement to meat, fish and poultry when used with a low-fat, high-fiber diet. However, they are widely used today as a complete food with complete protein content and as a salad ingredient.

In America, the oriental greens seeds are primarily used as a source of protein for recipes such as pate, potato salad and cabbage rolls. They are also grown as a vegetable in the South of the United States and in other areas of Europe and Asia. In Europe, they are most popular as a vegetable in Spain, Italy, France and Portugal while the North of England uses the leafy greens in turnips, kale and chicory. In America, they are more popular in the southern states where they are planted as a vegetable, while appearing rarely as a fruit tree.

A common question about how to grow them is, how do they sprout? Sprouts take about two weeks to appear, after which they are usually red and firm. You should not attempt to grow them if you are not familiar with indoor gardening methods. If you are not a beginner, try growing seedlings that are similar to the kind you want to sprout. For example, if you want to grow kale, try growing red cress, daikon radishes and dill.

To encourage seedling growth, water the seedlings generously when you plant them and after harvesting. Watering helps to make it easier for them to push through the clump and into the next stage of development. Make sure they are sprayed with a non-irrigating herbicide at least once a month during their first two or three months of growth. If they are crowded, it may be better to use a light feed.

Once you have decided to try growing seedlings, it is important to plant them properly. The location will be affected by the time of year, if you plant them in your garden in the summer months they will need extra warmth from the sun. This can be achieved by building your container garden's structure to allow some sunlight to filter through to them. Similarly, seedlings planted in pots will need to be watered more regularly than seedlings that are planted directly in your garden.

It is best to harvest your own oriental greens seeds. Sow seedlings directly into a small pot, add a small handful of soil each day and water well after you transplant them into the area where you want them to grow. Do not leave them for long periods. They will need to have access to ample light, but not too much. Plant them about six to eight inches deep and about two to three inches wide. It is best to place them in partial shade if they are going to be grown outdoors.

When the weather conditions are just right, start turning your hays. This will allow the roots of the grass to develop at an accelerated rate, thus allowing you to harvest your own oriental greens seeds at the best time possible. Start turning the seedlings either during late spring or early fall. When turning your grass ensure that you loosen the soil around it to avoid being trapped between the turning blades. This can prevent good quality grass from developing properly. Also make sure that the blades are turned slightly clockwise to help loosen the soil even more.

The most common type of grass seed used for growing this type of vegetable is the Chinese Epsom salt. This must be stored in a dry location, so store it in Tupperware containers with tight lids. Most seed packets come with instructions on when the seedling needs to be planted as well as when they should be harvested. Once harvested, the Epsom salt should be used immediately, otherwise the greens will spoil and have no flavor.
