I think it's pheasant tail grass. So I imagine clumps here and there would look good?

I don't like thinning as I don't want to get rid of any plants.

I am new to ornamental grass so this year hopefully I will learn a lot.

I can't remember what grass it is off the top of my head. It does look like I have some work cut out tomorrow. I think I will put some in small pots,some in a clump in big pots and then dot some around the garden.

Cheers,I feel less silly now.

I am used to flower seedlings with their true leaves,not ornamental grass seedlings,so during germination when do I prick out?

Do these look ok to prick out?

Never mind,I know people on this website,basically gardeners in general,are really kind. I just hope that somebody on here lives in the area.

Hi all,I am wondering if anyone has spare(free) top soil in the area as I am creating a secret raised garden for my little girls?

I am hoping that my admiration for nature and gardening can pass on to my children.

 It looks better in the flesh,it's difficult to take a photo on the kindle.

I have planted some hellebore seedlings down the back of the play house with cow parsley. In summer I am hoping that sweet peas and clematis are all over the house.

I love my pots. Last year the tulips were up in the middle of June! I have crocuses first then lots of tulips with the odd hyacinth. Good old lasagne planting. It pleases my wife every day looking from our kitchen window.

what are you propagating?

Obelixx I do it when there is fresh growth,where it is nice and bendy.

Is spring or autumn the best time for root cuttings as I have had limited results?

It will carry on,believe me they get big.

I am going to sow some sunflowers and marigolds this weekend with my young girls,hopefully they will get the gardening bug.
