Surrey, United Kingdom
I have two huge clumps of pampas which are very congested in the middle. We tried to rake out a lot of the centre in each ... which took hours and hours and only reduced the debris by about a 3rd and the leaves are vicious. I have heard about burning them and that they will regenerate is this true? I dont want to kill them as they are really beautiful when the plumes come . If it is ok to do this when is the best time. I thought originally late autumn when the plumes look sad after wind/rain battering that happens in October, but dont know whether the winter period would the kill them off! any suggestions? thankyou .
