If vandals might be a problem, plant it up with Rubus cockburnianus 'Golden Vale' - that'd teach them 'consequences'

Any idea's please

Oh, I'd love to plant a group of multi-stemmed silver birch right on the top, then under-plant with spring bulbs, primroses and cowslips; then some Cyclamen hederifolium for the autumn

That way it could still be mowed a few times a year and kept neat, but it would look fantastic

They don't have cake there .... only toast and dripping  LOL 

green eggs

The green eggs will be slow release fertiliser.

Everything I read about your Purple Fountain Grass tells me that it's a tender perennial usually treated as an annual as it is difficult to over winter.  

£15 is an awful lot to pay for that!  I'd take it back and ask for another (or your money back).  

Did you get it in Norfolk?

I 'semi-force' mine under a rhubarb forcer to produce in the very early spring - I was picking early February this year, so I stop picking mine early to give it plenty of rest.

 If you don't put yours under that stress you can carry on picking for another month

Plenty of cake folks!  And OH has just made the G&Ts 

It's quite blustery outside this evening, all the tall perennials are getting bashed about a bit 

Rebecca - if you don't eat meat that means you'll have lots of room for cake
