… In their front garden a certain ornamental grass will be on prominent display and that grass is?

Pampass grass

Pampass Grass, so a better time to get to know your neighbours?

    Mine isn’t so much of a response as a question. I am somewhat slow when it comes to gardening. My husband and I just moved in to a new house. In our yard, there is ornamental grass that looks somewhat like Pampass grass. The entire plant is brown and frail looking, but the reeds don’t break easily when bent which leads me to belive the plant is still alive. I was wondering whether the grass should be completely cut down so it can start from scratch, or whether we should let spring take its course, and leave the grass as is.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Ceara

    Thanks for stopping by. You might think you are slow at this messing with plants lark but you comment covers both options.

    You could cut back at this stage, however, it is late and may affect growth for this year. Or you could simply just wait and see what evolves…

    You probably have an ornamental grass, I hope that you enjoy it, they are stunning plants and much underrated. If possible please send us an image.
