• Seed-raising mix
• Channel end caps (2)
• Paperbark rolls (3)
You'll also need

Step 1Slide end caps into each end of plastic channel. This forms trough for plants.
Step 2Soak wheat grass seeds in a small bowl of water for at least 1 hour before scattering (this helps them germinate).
Step 3Half-fill trough with seed-raising mix. Mist surface until moist.
Step 4Scatter seeds along trough and gently press them into soil. Mist every 1-2 days to keep soil moist.
Step 5Once 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 6Wrap paper bark around trough to cover and secure with twine.
