For those of you that are new to straw bale gardening, you may have noticed that once you have completed the BaleGrow™ treatment system, small grass-like blades could start to appear. The good news is, this is all normal. Wheat grass is a by-product to the baling process which has created the straw you are now growing in.
The process of straw production is achieved in 3 stages.
So don’t panic that you are going to have a bale full of weeds, this is not the case. The small blades of grass are simply a by-product of the production process of your straw bale and won’t stop you growing strong, happy plants in your BaleGrow™ garden.
