I feel very honoured. I received 42 of those elusive seeds ... Because of BB20. I have no experience at all with grains. I found this thread because I searched for the needed information.
The information is not really unambiguous ... But because I have the seeds now, in September, and some say it can be sown in September, I think it's best to sow it now. Maybe sow 30 seeds and keep 12 'as a reserve'.
I think I'll sow it at the spot where I did grow flax before, there's still nothing but sedums (my 'living mulch') growing there. In general the soil in my garden is not rich (it's sand plus compost and mulch I added the last 5 years). I understand Sepp Holzer grain is doing well in poor soil.
I read about cutting, scything or mowing it, so I'll cut it (with scissors) a few times next year. And then hopefully in 2022 it will give new grains. To share with others who can grow more, etc.

To practice branding a sign I first made a small sign for my Sepp Holzer Grains

('graan is Dutch for 'grain')
