Want to create a super simple DIY spring tablescape for your home? Growing wheat grass doesn’t get any easier.
- Glass Jar (I used some from The Dollar Tree)
- Plant Dirt
- Wheat Berries (a whole wheat kernel found at health stores or on Amazon)
Step One – Materials
Set up all the materials needed, which isn’t very many. Glass jars are fun because you can see the roots grow. The Dollar Tree and thrift shops are a great place to shop.
Wheat berries are inexpensive and you only need a tiny bit. Generally sold in health stores or online. Any potting soil will do.
Step Two – Plant
You will add enough dirt to fill the jar 2/3 full. Pack down VERY lightly.
Add a thin layer of wheat berries across the entire top.
Add another thin layer of dirt to cover all of the seeds.
Add water slowly to not make huge holes in the soil. Get all the seeds damp.
Step Three – Watch Grow
Set the jars in a window seal and wait a few days. Soon the seeds will sprout and grow. Keep lightly watered. To much will create mildew. The grass will last for weeks and you can trim as needed. It is edible too!
Enjoy your simple spring tablescape!
