Description

White Millet is a type of large grass that is a popular seed both as a straight and in mixtures for shoots as it provides the game birds with a source of both food and cover. Particularly relished by Partridges. It will produce a plentiful amount of seed even if grown on its own. White Millet has vigorous growth and reaches about a metre in height. It is thicker leaved and produces more seed than Red Millet. The two are often combined together in mixtures. White Millet is more winter resistant than Red Millet.
