How to Create a Living Easter Basket

Say goodbye to stringy cellophane grass for your Easter baskets this year and plant some live grass for stunning results. Get the kids to help you put it together—at least 10 days in advance—and spend the days leading up to Easter watching it come to life. (Plus, if you plant wheat grass, you can juice it too!)

Living Easter Basket Directions

  • Choose a potting container that fits inside your basket, or line your basket with a planting tray or waxed paper.
  • Add fresh potting soil, leaving about a half-inch from the top of the container, and reserving some to top the seeds.
  • Sprinkle grass seeds over the top of the soil (wheat grass or any quick grow variety).
  • Sprinkle just enough potting soil to barely cover the seeds.
  • Water the soil, just enough to keep it moist to the touch on top.
  • Continue watering daily and place basket in a sunny spot near a window.
  • Seeds should begin sprouting within 3-4 days and by 10-12 days, you should have a lush bed of grass.
