Thank you for your write up.  We are als using wheat grass for our centerpieces.  However, my fiance has a his degree in turf and lawn management so I am sure he can handle this.  It just nice to have an idea for myself LOL.  They are beautiful!

Thank you so uch for sharing! I was wondering how this could be done!

I see that you grew your grass in many different pots. Was it hard to move it into the containers you wanted to use for the centerpieces?

How much did you pay for the 5 lbs?  Do you have the info for the vendor you bought it from on amazon?

 

thanks!

Thanks for this!  I’m glad it made it on the homepage. I am using the same long rectangular pots, purchased on clearance from JoAnns. I think we are going to spray paint ours white though.  Thanks again, you gave me courage that I can do this!

Do you have seeds left over that you would be willing to sell?

 

Thanks!

This is fantastic!  I love wheatgrass, too.  Our wedding was in Savannah, well known for it’s many green squares in the historice downtown.  We named the tables after squares and used wheatgrass centerpieces — it was a perfect fit for the theme!  Unfortunately we didn’t grow our own and we paid DEARLY for our florist to get the wheatgrass from a wholesaler.  Seriously, I thought we’d be saving money but using grass instead of fresh, cut flowers but in the end, I think we had to pay the same – or more.  Oh well – congrats to you for DIYing your grass.  So smart — and looks really great!

Do you have pictures of your guest tables? I’d love to see how the centerpieces looked/were set up 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing this!  I am planning on doing wheat grass centerpieces for my wedding, but was having a little bit of trouble finding directions like you were and was going to have to do a lot of trial-and-error.  Thanks to you, now I don’t have to!  I’ll probably just do a practice, and if it works out, I’ll be good to go.  I am curious, though, can you get this stuff growing early, cut it off, and let it grow back out again?  I think that is what the health food people do, but I was wondering if anybody in the centerpiece world had any experience with it.  Thanks for such a great DIY post!

We planted an entire yard with wheat grass and it looks fab………….especially since there hasn’t been grass in our outdoor venue in probably 15 years…lol  the centerpieces would have been a great idea if id have thought about it sooner 🙂 Or wait, i still have 13 days 😉
