I cut mine back last year but I managed to kill one and the other looked really thin and miserable, was slow to grow back so I'm holding back on pruning it again. I'm just going to pull out the brown bits.
@ublaszko I was quite pleased this one flowered (or whatever the grass equivalent is 😂) but it doesn’t seem to have grown particularly much. I’ll pot them on this week so hopefully will encourage more growth. Do you cut these back to make them bushier?
Nope, don't cut it back 😅 Stipa grasses are generally slow to bush out in the first year or two and then in the third year they start to look like a proper clump of grass. Only move your ornamental grasses when they're in vigorous growth (May onwards) otherwise they do nothing for a year. I pruned mine back this year only because Pudgy and Lucius were munching on it when they were kittens. Now they're adult cats they seem to have more self-control 😂😂
Telling me! I tried saving a cabbage white once from Pudgy's teeth and she growled at me! 😲😲 Never heard it before 😨 Not saving any more cabbage whites, they can be her protein rich snack 😂😂😂 @kez001uk
