Bring in the Spring!
What You'll Need to Grow Live Easter Grass
Empty decorative pot or container that is leak proof
(If you are using an Easter Basket, line it with plastic wrap to make it leak proof)
bag of VERMICULITE from the florist shop or nursery
(this is what The Little Red Hen would grind into flour, you may have some in your food storage)
One week before Easter, line the sides and bottom of the basket or container that you want to grow grass in with plastic wrap, unless the container is already leak proof. Pour vermiculite in up to TWO INCHES BELOW THE RIM.
Sprinkle a layer of wheat over the vermiculite. Slowly, pour water into the basket or container until it is BARELY visible beneath the wheat. There will be no need to water it again.
Place a piece of plastic wrap loosely over the top of the wheat. Place basket in a sunny spot, like on a window sill, but not in direct sunlight.
