The link to the videao has the wrong name! It should read "grass" rather that "buddleya"

I really enjoy the how to do video clips but am infuriated by the preceeding advertisement. Is there a way of avoiding these adverts? This morning I have a message saying the adobe flash plug in has crashed. Hopefully it is the car in the advert and I shall see it no more!

"Now is the right time to..."
When?!? When is the right time? I don't know when this clip was first broadcast! How about dating them or giving a month at least in the title, please, Gardeners' World?

Good point about dates.  For anyone who doesn't know, ornamental grasses - except groups like Carex which only need raking through to remove dead growth - should be cut back in late winter/early spring before the new growth starts to come through but after serious frosts and snow have gone so Feb/March depending on region and weather.

My ornamental grasses break off in he wind and blow all over the garden, seeding themselves where I don't want them, so I cut mine down in late October.

Not really ideal to cut them down in autumn.  Spring is advisable.
