Lettuce Centerpiece

Plant a living centerpiece for your garden table

TIME: About 30 minutes

COST: About $45



  1. Fill the container halfway with potting soil.
  2. Push plants from their sixpacks, then plant them about 2 inches apart. For best effects, group them by kind, with the tallest plants (such as romaine) in the back. Fill in around them with more potting soil.
  3. Set the lettuce centerpiece in filtered shade and water it well.
  4. Continue to water regularly; fertilize once a week with dilute fish emulsion.

The day of the barbecue, thoroughly mist the leaves with water to clean them before placing the container on the patio table.
