Annual Cutting of Perennial Ornamental Grasses

Every year in late February early March cut your perennial grasses to the ground in readiness for the wonderful graceful new growth. Here I am cutting the Miscanthus down in my own garden, I have left them all winter adding structure to the border but now its time to chop them down. Other grasses in my own garden getting a chop are the Pennisetums, Calamagrostis, Hakonechloa macra.

Whats amazing is by early summer the Miscanthus and Calamagrostis have grown back to 1.8 - 2.0 metres tall, looking all lush and green.

This blog will be distributed to many of our clients who all ask how to look after their Ornamental grasses.
