Real Easter Basket Grass!

Want to make your Easter egg hunt even more eggciting? Begin a new holiday tradition and grow your own Easter basket grass! This is a beautiful, fresh and eco-friendly alternative to plastic grass. Plus, it’s fun, easy and your kids will love it.

Supplies:

Step-By-Step: 

First, find a plastic planter saucer that is close to the size of your Easter basket and will fit nicely inside.

Then, fill the plastic plant saucer half way full with potting soil and spread it evenly.

Next, pour out your grass seed, covering the dirt. Once the dirt is covered, push the seed down with your fingers about half an inch into the dirt. Some of the seed will still be visible.

Now, add water to the dirt. Make sure the soil is wet throughout, but don’t drown the seeds! Place your saucers under your Miracle-Gro AeroGarden LED Grow Light and water your grass every day, just enough to dampen the soil.

On day 3 or 4, your grass should begin popping up!

Between day 4 and 6, your grass should be coming in nicely and should be thick.

Between day 8 and 12, your grass will be ready for your Easter basket! If it is too tall, you can always cut it down with a pair of garden shears.

Enjoy! This is a tradition we are sure you will look forward to every year. Happy growing.
