Trimming Ornamental Grasses – Spring Plant Care Tips

Spring is the time to trim your ornamental and native grasses.  You will want to get this done before the new growth begins.

Cut all of your grasses down to just a few inches above the ground.  You want to remove all of last year’s foliage to allow the new growth to emerge from the crowns.

Some grasses will start to grow right away, (like Karl Foerster), but be patient with Switch or Flame Grasses as they will not show signs of new growth until the soil warms up.  Spring is also the best time to divide your grasses if they have gotten to large.
