i have a very large miscanthus Morning Light..........prob 10 ' tall; With the flowers it will be 2' taller. Anyway, against gardening wisdom, I took a spade to it and dug it out egged on by a visitor who craved a piece of it. Massively heavy I got it out. Bear in mind I really like this grass. Divided it carefully with a saw into half a dozen large pieces and planted 3 elsewhere in the garden.
if asked on the forum should I do this I would say no....wait a few weeks....you could lose it or the flowers anyway at this time of year
however, I think it will be fine.....I even think the divisions will flower too. Besides I am impatient to replant the area and can see how it will look next summer with my replacements actea Black Negligee that has been growing well all summer in a large pot. Tomorrow I will move and divide a large white astrantia and set it alongside.
Saves time later too but Should really have waited a while longer..........but pleased I did it .
any other impulsive guys out there?
