4. Choose your seeds.
Felines enjoy cat grass, while dogs prefer Lucerne grass. Sow barley, oats and wheat for your rabbit, and timothy meadow grass and plantains for guinea pigs.
5. Bury large seeds.
Push large seeds, like cat grass, slightly below the surface of soil. Cover them with soil using your fingertips.
6. Add small seeds.
Sprinkle small seeds, such as Lucerne grass, over the surface of moist soil. Add a thin layer of soil on top.
