Cheryl’s Horticulture Tip of the Month


Growing Wheat Grass

  • Wheat berries are sold at Health food stores or on line. The seeds and grass are both edible.
  • Soak wheat berries over night.

  • Fill leak proof container of your choice with soil. If planning on eating the  wheat grass choose organic soil.
  • Generously sprinkle soaked wheat berries over soil and cover lightly with another layer of soil. Water in.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and put in a bright sunny spot.
  • Check over the next few days to make sure moisture is consistent. When you start to see sprouts take plastic wrap off.  Keep soil moist by misting or watering lightly.
  • At this point, the grass will grow rapidly and fill in. Be sure to keep moist.  Cut grass if it begins to get too long for your desired project.
  • Have Fun!
