Sarah is sent us an email: "My best friend wants small grass planters as centerpieces at her wedding reception. She is hoping for 20 rectangular planters with green grass. Is there a place we can buy these, with the grass already planted? Thanks!"

We'd actually suggest choosing your rectangular planters separately and then adding the grass yourself, so you have the widest choice of container. Already sprouted, healthy wheatgrass is pretty easy to pick up - we've seen it around at Whole Foods and Trader Joes and it is hearty, so doing a transplant to your centerpiece containers should be a snap.

Also, from what we've heard, growing wheatgrass for a centerpiece is an easy and very quick DIY, which depending on your friends budget, you may want to try...here is some good online info.

That said, has anyone seen any preplanted grass centerpieces available for sale? Please let Sarah know in the comments...
