Plant Description: A neat, compact, perennial grass, this has lots of close-packed, stiff, thread-like stems forming a strongly horizontal shape about 60cm (2ft) tall. In summer, plants are covered with masses of elegant pale feathery seed-heads which are held a little above the foliage. These can be cut and dried when first opened for use in winter arrangements indoors. Alternatively they make a useful winter food source for finches and other seed-eating birds. Plants like a sunny well-drained spot and associate well with compact alstroemerias, rock plants and other grasses that enjoy similar growing conditions. To propagate, divide plants from mid-spring to early summer.

We use locally made natural worm cast based compost and feed. This is a natural bio food making healthy strong plants, naturally balanced and less prone to disease.
Are plants are grown hardy to enable faster establishment after they arrive too you. it is important to unwrap immediately and soak if needed. if you need time before planting then a loose covering of compost in a pot for any plugs or bare root plants will do.
