Revitalizing Ornamental Grasses - Knowledgebase Question

Cincinnati, OH
Question by JudyMagazin

I have a clump of 5 ornamental grasses. They did well the year before last, then did not do well
last summer - I think due to the unusually dry spell and little water.

What can I do for them now to revitalize them and bring them back to glorious health this year?

If you haven't sone so already, cut them back to as close to the ground as possible, being careful not to damage any new growth that may have already started. An application of a complete fertilizer and/or some compost or well-rotted manure would help to revitalize them. They will also appreciate several inches of organic mulch and an occasional deep watering if the summer is another dry one. They should grow bigger and better for you every year.
