Hope this isn’t a silly question, but does this stay more or less like this through winter? @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

@halfy21 afraid not helen. It dies back, and then comes again in spring.

Thanks Dave. Not for my winter border then. Gorgeous anyway, might get some for elsewhere 😀 @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

@halfy21 zebra grass looks nice in winter helen, although you cut it right down in spring, it adds good winter interest.

That’s a good suggestion, thanks 👍🏼, that will fill the vacant spot in the winter border @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

Bit of a dilemma today. Do I buy a nice pot for my new grass, or get two cheaper ones and get another plant. So now I've got two.🤗

I planted one in the ground which I cut back & is growing back. I bought a new one recently but I'm thinking of putting it in a pot too 😊

@icedance , hi Sam, bit of #advice I'm thinking of putting this imperata in a pot , and was wondering what compost to put it in. Is multi purpose ok or would you put it in a mix with John Innes ? Thanks Sam.

comment
icedance

Hi David they do like to keep relatively moist so if I was doing it I would go for one of the moisture retaining multi purpose - two thirds to one third John innes 3 I normally do the other way round but too muck j I would be too heavy for grass roots 🙂🙂 maybe a bit of grit too to aid drainage as they want damp not boggy 👍
