Despite the fact that I am plant-growing challenged, I decided to see if I could grow some wheat grass for an Easter/Spring centerpiece for my table.
You will most likely find wheat berries at your local health food store.
I googled 'how to grow wheat grass' and the general consensus is that the berries need to be soaked over night. Some say to rinse them a couple times and soak another night. I just soaked mine until I could see little sprouts.
Everything I read said that the grass is very easy to grow and almost any container will work.
Just barely cover the seeds with soil, they said.
And then you wait. And water.
I just watered once a day and kept the soil moist.
This is just 10 days later.
I am so pleased with how easy it was to grow.
If you're looking for a great, natural spring centerpiece for your table - give this a try!
And some proof that I may be turning over a new leaf in plant growing - this fern has been alive for 2 months now!
