Golden rule

Posted: 18/07/2012 at 09:42

What is the golden rule as to when to prune plants ? I heard somewhere that if a plant flowers in spring you prune it -- and i cant remember the rest. And also visa versa -- if a plant flowers in later summer months -- you prune in spring???????


Could someone please correct me.

Oh i see - i will have to watch out for that again.

As for the Stipa - i had one, now i have four - they sself seed so to speak.

I also have a Briza media - its a rare one to find - i bought it at Wisley earlier this year. Now theirs a garden centre if you ever get bored.

Thank you for all your responses. I will leave them as they are - i like the sound of giving insects a habitat for the wintering months.


When i posted this question - i could see it - but when i clicked on - nothing showed up so i wrote it again. Probably just a forum bleep.

Thanks again guys.

Do you recommend cutting back Stipa Tenuissima in spring? I regular pull the loose dead grasses out but have never cut them back hard. Would it bring new life to them and make them greener the following year / bouncier?
