pampas grass

Lancashire, United Kingdom Gb

had mine approx 3 years now---each year its getting its long spindly leaves but not any feathery plumes at all--what am i doing wrong or is it a number of years before they appear?---if none this year might have to get rid.



Have you fed it? Give it some blood, fish and bone around the root area. Don't get rid of it, poor plant! Patience, patience! Talk to it nicely... ;-)

Pampas grass grows wild in the region around Santander. There is a largish marshy area which they seem to love and, in autumn, the swaying fronds are magnificent. It always amazes me that we all pamper our plants with their culinary preferences, but no-one ever feeds the wild ones which continue to grow, blossom, seed etc without our help. It's rather annoying!
