You have seen more than enough articles and blog posts on how to grow herbs, veggies and succulents. 
Now that the public is becoming more health aware they are potting up and growing their own food and edibles.  Here are some easy and fun tips for growing Wheat grass.

Wheat grass is a flavorful way to get more greens into your diet.  By planting a tray of it you will always have this healthy option close at hand.  Here’s how…

Start by selecting a shallow container.  Bonsai dishes, oval and square garden planters, garden bowls and wok planters all work with great success.  You don’t need a deep flowerpot or tray to grow wheat grass since the seeds are not buried but lay on top of the soil to grow.

Purchase seeds from your local garden center.  Fill the garden pot with soil mix about 1” deep.  Gently compress the soil mix in the planter.  Water soil till moist but not dripping wet.  Cover about half the planting area with seeds but try to make sure they don’t touch.  Lightly compress the seeds into the soil.  Cover the pot with a lid or upturned plant saucer.

When spent, toss everything into the compost pile and start over with a cleaned out flowerpot.

Suggestions:  Juice the grass, blend the whole grass in a smoothie, add to a salad mix or to any soup dish.
