Cortaderia selloana ‘Mini Pampas’

mini Pampas grass

Pampas grass seemed almost ubiquitous not so long ago – unfairly dismissed as large unkempt things with browning leaves and scruffy giant plumes, often broken by the wind and squeezed inappropriately into small suburban front gardens.

Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Plant in early spring, in full sun and moist soil to allow the plant to establish. Once established it will become tolerant to dry conditions.

The dry leaves and plumes provide a dramatic backdrop in winter. In spring, once the risk of frost has passed, a hard cutback will encourage new growth to push through.

Feeding is not required, however a high nitrogen fertiliser is more than welcomed a few times a year, in spring.

Expert Tip

Pampas grass can be planted in containers too. Make sure you choose a large enough pot and use well draining compost when planting.

Feeding the grasses

Grasses, in general, have really low requirements for fertilisers. They can thrive in any soil, as long as it’s well drained.

For a thriving garden, a high nitrogen, slow release fertiliser is encouraged. Feed with slow release bamboo fertiliser twice a year to encourage strong healthy plants.
