Greening it up!

Greening it up!

Sprinkle some grass seed into a tray of potting soil.
Cover the seed lightly with more potting soil and water gently.
Keep moist and cover with a piece of plastic film.
Find a warm spot to sprout your little table top lawn.
Enjoy on your table for several weeks–this should help get your through Winter!

    1. Audrey, I usually pick up a small bag of grass seed this time of year at the Dollar Store! It’s small and inexpensive–no need to purchase a large amount for this project. 🙂

  1. Now, in our Healing Garden all the plants are talking about “Tabletop Gardens.” Every plant wants one of their own. Even plants without a table want a tabletop garden. We think you have found a new niche as a landscape designer for these specialty gardens. We can see an entire line of tabletop gardening containers (ceramic, paper mache, wood – everything sustainable and fantastic). And designs! Including bonsai forests, meadows of baby tears and tiny alpine flowers. Of course, this may lead to a whole line of specialty tables for displaying specialty tabletop gardens. We, here, cannot wait to take off our shoes and walk through the grass on our table. Thank you for the inspiring imagery. – The Healing Garden gardener

  2. It looks like a swirling snowglobe outside right now, so your photo is a breath of fresh air and reminds me we are inching towards spring. There will be a spring this year, right??

  3. I keep meaning to do this. I’ve seen lovely small pots filled with grass and set on a table that make me want one. I think I see a trip to the store in the near future.

  4. What a fantastic idea! I think I have some seed in the shed – but oh, I would have to make my way out there – yikes. I’ll do it! Anything for green. Once when I went on vacation from work, my coworkers swapped my keyboard with a non-working one and planted grass seed in it so when I came back to work my keyboard was sprouting grass!
