Can I grow Millet?

Post by Sher » Wed, 25 Apr 2001 02:44:42



My little ones love their treat of millet, but what I have been able to
get is usually really dry and ugly..
I live Washington, with the four seasons.. Has anyone ever grown it, is
there a site I can visit..and is it worth the time and effort to try..??
Thanks..

I grow it in sourthen Washington state, but, I feed it green as we do have a
"shorter" growing season.  Birds love it. (The little brown triangular seeds
in the***atiel mix is buckwheat, plant is purty and birds really go for it
roots and all)

I live in Wisconsin and in the summer when we head up north we see endless
fields of millet... There is a good chance that the millet that you buy in
the stores was grown up by Chilton, where kaytee is based....

My husband always plants about 5 acres as cover and feed for wild birds. The
seed mix he got this year is called "Michigan mix" and has sunflower,
buckwheat, corn and millet. If it will grow in Michigan it should grow
easily in Washington.
