Gather your supplies:
• Wheat grass seeds (suitable quantity to cover surface of trough)
85mm x 1m RELN black plastic channel
• Seed-raising mix
• Channel end caps (2)
• Paperbark rolls (3)
You'll also need
• Flowers (such as gerberas); twine; spray bottle; small bowl; florist wire (optional)
Step 1 Slide end caps into each end of plastic channel. This forms trough for plants.
Step 2 Soak wheat grass seeds in a small bowl of water for at least 1 hour before scattering (this helps them germinate).
Step 3 Half-fill trough with seed-raising mix. Mist surface until moist.
Step 4 Scatter seeds along trough and gently press them into soil. Mist every 1-2 days to keep soil moist.
Step 5 Once wheat grass has grown to desirable height, use a pencil to poke holes in soil where you want flowers to sit. Wrap florist wire around each flower stem and put into holes.
Step 6 Wrap paper bark around trough to cover and secure with twine.
