Hardy Perennial Grass
A delectable new grass from Japan. Superb spring foliage emerges in shades of pink and bronze, darkening later. Unlike any pictures we have been able to research, but this new grass is absolutely superb whatever its true identity.
SOIL-BASED COMPOST. COVER SEEDS THINLY AND KEEP MOIST AT AROUND 15 DEGREES C OR 60 DEGREES F. SOME SPECIES CAN BE VERY SLOW INDEED AND MAY NEED COOLER TEMPERATURES BEFORE THEY WILL COME UP. GRASS SEEDLINGS SHOULD BE POTTED ON AND GROWN ON SINGLY, OR IN CLUMPS FOR MORE RAPID ESTABLISHMENT OF A LARGE SPECIMEN.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per grow bag when 20cm (8in) high. Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed.
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
