Good morning,

I have some small ornamental grasses such as Pennisetum and was wondering if they have to be cut back in Spring, like I do with the miscanthus?

Thanks in advance!

Ooops, Dove, didn't notice that!

By the way, wanted to quote your post, but didn't work, is that another blip on the site?

We made ours out of scaffolding boards, they are now 8 years old and showing no signs of rot. Used ones are cheaper if you can get them.

Here a couple of links that might be useful:

Sometimes I wonder who picks the music. How Steve and his partner were supposed to dance a Pasa Doble to that totally inappropriate piece beats me!

Oooh, Dove, thank you for posting that link. I obviously can't buy any from here, but has been a feast for my eyes, can hardly believe there are so many beautiful varieties of fuchsias! Am green with envy at your choice!

YOUR view of music over the years.

We must be a similar age, Mike, my music tastes are like yours, 50's, 60s, some 70's, not many 80's or 90s. Everything from Elvis to Andy Stewart!

I'm sure it will sprout soon, but I hope you've got it the right way up, the pointiest bit at the top!

Why not? Once the climbers are climbing up them, you won't see the rats' tails!
