General Plant Care:    Grasses are low-maintenance plants that generally do not need special care other than monitoring for water needs in times of extreme drought.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Once in spring with a slow-release fertilizer recommended for this plant (shrub, tree) at a rate according to package directions.
General Pruning suggestions:    Most grasses add texture and interest to the fall and winter garden. Allow them to stay in place until late winter or early spring. Cut or mow back before new growth appears. If grass blades are sharp or difficult to handle, try wrapping the clump with cord, burlap, or newspaper before cutting back. Depending on the size of the clump, a chain saw may come in handy.
