Spring Basket of Grass
Bring a little spring indoors by planting a container of fresh green grass.
Containers of grass make the perfect backdrop for cut flowers or colorful Easter eggs as well as an indoor play field for action heroes and dolls. Plus, it’s easy to do and you’ll get quick results.
Select a shallow container or decorative pot with drainage holes. Fill with a well-drained potting mix. Cover the soil surface with a quick sprouting grass seed like rye or wheat grass. Then gently tamp to insure good seed-to-soil contact and gently water.
Sprout your grass in a bright location and gently water often enough to keep the soil evenly moist. Once the grass sprouts, move it to a sunny window. Then water it thoroughly whenever the soil starts to dry.
Place cut flowers in floral picks and arrange them in your field of grass. Or display other spring decorations and use your pot of grass as a centerpiece.
A bit more information: Break out the scissors when it’s time to give your indoor lawn a haircut. And consider growing a pot of grass for your patio or deck. Kids playing in or visiting your landscape will find it the perfect place to play with dollhouses, play sets, animals and action heroes.
