Planting and Care
PLANTING, ideal time for planting your ornamental grass is from early spring to early fall right before frost of winter arrives. select an area with FULL SUN, ornamental grasses are easily grown in a wide range of soils, including clay, alkaline and compacted soils, avoid wet soggy soils, once established grasses are highly adaptable and drought resistant. When planting dig a hole 6-12 inches wider than your new plant's root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level, this is very important, planting the plant deeper than the original top soil line may severely damage the tree. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply the mulch over the entire planting area.
WATER your ornamental grass twice a week during the first 2 months to establish a strong root system, Once your new ornamental grass is established, rainfall should suffice for your grass's watering needs, increase frequency during extremely hot days, you should always verify the top 2-3 inches of soil, if dry to the touch is time to water.
FERTILIZE your plants during spring before new growth begins. Applying a slow-release, 180 days duration, well balance fertilizer is probably the simplest solution and least expensive.
