Hi everyone,

im new to this but im hoping someone can help me out. Im getting married in December and i desperately want wheat as a centrepiece for my tables. however, you cant import wheat from overseas (its restricted) and im struggling to find somewhere in australia that you can buy wheat stalks - or even grain stalks.

Ive seen pictures of wedding in australia with wheat so i know you can get it somehow, just cant figure out how exactly...its harvesting season now so its gotta be out there - BUT WHERE???!!!

Can anyone help me out? PLEASE!!

You often see it in florists when in season - more the market type florists though. You may have to ask for it though, or even ask if they could order you some for your wedding.

Otherwise if you know of a wheat farmer, ask them if you could have some. It depends on where you are located, and if wheat is grown near you.

My dining room table currently sports this live zen-like centerpiece of wheat grass. Even if you think you have a brown thumb, I promise you’ll be successful with a wheat grass centerpiece.I purchased 14 cents worth of wheat grass at a natural food store from the bulk bins. Some craft stores also offer wheat grass seed at this time of year but the one near me only sold it in 16 ounce cups and I just didn’t need that much seed.Wheat grass grows quickly and after just after 3 to 4 days green shoots begin forcing their way through the soil.In about a week to 10 days you’ll have a full container of grass. Cut it back so it stays nice and thick looking instead of getting long and leggy. I simply use a pair of scissors to give my saucer full of wheat grass a crew cut.

Fake wheat stalk might be easier to source, perhaps?

Perhaps try asking companies like b00st juice where they source theirs from?

Where are you? The wheat around here looks pretty ordinary now it has rained but there would be areas where the wheat is looking perfect at the moment.
