The Q&A Archives: Spring Maintenance

Question: I have planted several of your hardy pampas grass in my landscape. They bloomed to over 6 feet last fall. Now it's spring and I am not sure if I need to trim off last years foliage. If so, how much should I trimmoff, and when should I trim off last years growtn?

Answer: Ornamental grasses may be cut back in late fall or in early spring before they begin to grow again for the season. Cut off the old foliage as short at the ground as you can (at about six inches.)
