Here are some do's and don'ts and important tips for planting ornamental grasses in the cottage yard, shared by HTA and horticultural consultant Adam Pasco

1. Ornamental grasses are suitable for clumping or for combining several types in pots and should not be planted alone.

2. Some large potted ornamental grasses can be planted in separate plants, but care should be taken to ensure the integrity of each root system.

3. Ornamental grasses are perfectly capable of growing well in open pots, and if you are planting larger types of ornamental grasses be sure to ensure that the pots or planting boxes have enough weight to prevent being blown over by high winds.

4. Plastic from old compost bags can be used to arrange your ornamental grass planters to help retain moisture.

5、The tops of some perennial ornamental grasses die off in the winter, such as mangrove. So you have to cut it off and prune it out in time to avoid hindering germination the following spring.

6, Many ornamental grasses can be cultivated by seed. Annual ornamental grasses such as rabbittail, dahlia, wolftail, and annuals such as pinetail, as well as perennials such as Tertiary fescue, can be planted by spring seeding.
