There is no bigger bang for your buck than planting wheat grass!
It couldn't be simpler!
If you do it now you can use it as a centerpiece for
St. Patrick's Day & Easter
with a couple quick changes!
I planted mine last Saturday, here is a simple how-to:
You'll need: Containers, Potting Soil and Seeds
You can purchase Red or White Winter Wheat Berries from the bulk section at a
local natural food store for about $1 - $2, this 2 lb. bag is enough to last years!
I used this bag last spring and they're still fine.
Fill containers with potting soil and sow Wheat Berry seeds.
I like the grass thick, be sure to use plenty.
Lightly cover the seeds with soil.
My soil had some larger woody pieces, no big deal.
Water well using a spray bottle.
At this point I watch over them like baby chicks for just a few days until they've sprouted,
they tend to dry out quickly. I water them very well using the spray bottle
about 3 times per day.
You can keep them in any room with light, sun isn't necessary.
After 3 days.
Do you see the cute little white wormy looking guys...sprouts! :)
After 10 - 14 days yours can look just like any of these!
The possibilities for containers and styles are endless, here are some ideas.
