Pampass Grass - just purchased a pampass grass which still has 1 perfect flower stem, about 4 ft tall. I have never had a pampass before so am unsure of how and when to cut back the dead material. The leaves are creamy and have a papery texture, but there are signs of new growth so i took a chance on buying it (it wasnt expensive).
I have googled for advise and some say take out dead material in jan/fab, while other says leave until march/april. What time is best?
I understand i will need to clear away debris from the centre, but do i also need to cut back the dead leaves around the sides of the plant and by how much?
any advice greatfully received.
