Evening all, last year i paid £15 for a Purple Fountain Grass,followed the rules ,,cut down to 2 inches and cold greenhouse over winter,waited for it to start anytime but as nothing was showing i un potted it, Dead roots ,no smell just no life, no slugs nothing except about 30 tiny green squashable  eggs,about the  size of the small round polystyrene packing stuff you can get, not in a ball together but all spread separate through the soil, its a bit dull now but if needed i,ll pic some tomorrow .green eggs  Wot next and my poor grass in the council tip.
