By daylily


Thought this may be interesting as it was to me, found this article whilst looking through some magazines, I didnt realise you could do this to your Stipa Gigantea in late winter.

Hope you find this interesting and thanks for looking :))

It looks so like a hedgehog I found myself looking for a little nose peeping out!

That's good to know. I wonder if it's true for other grasses as well.

Yes me and OH thought it looked like a hedgehog too steragram :)

Hywel, I'm not too sure about that but I will be doing this as its got quite big and hope it works, I know with miscanthus I cut that back at the same time early spring before new growth :))

Thanks for comments :))

I might try it with the few grasses I've got, although they are only small ones.
