Ornamental grasses: easy to maintain

Add some year-round textural interest to your garden with several ornamental grasses. You can elevate any outdoor space to a more vibrant level with these beauties. The ornamental grasses give the garden a particularly dynamic effect when the wind blows through them. In addition, ornamental grasses are fairly easy to maintain. They have a quite large root ball, which ensures that they can withstand a somewhat drier period. After planting, however, it is good to water them regularly for a nice kick-start. Fertilising and annual pruning also do most ornamental grasses well. However, check the supplied information about the plant in question. Many varieties are evergreen; others have a beautiful brownish winter colour or die back to flourish again in spring. Stop by our plant centre in Kilmallock, Limerick, to find the right ornamental grass for your garden project or order online. We deliver nationwide.

Evergreen ornamental grasses

By combining different plants, you can create a garden that has interest every day of the year. Evergreen ornamental grasses are the perfect addition to your garden layout if you want your outdoor space to flourish year-round. Plant them in the border as a background for perennials, or let the grasses shine solitarily in a few beautiful pots. Make sure the plant has enough space for its roots to grow when you plant them in a container. The nice thing about ornamental grasses is that they look great in any garden: from a minimalist balcony to a zen garden with a pond. Some examples of evergreen ornamental grasses are:

✓ Luzula
✓ Helictotrichron
✓ Festuca
✓ Carex

How to plant your ornamental grasses?

Have you already decided on which ornamental grass you want to add to your garden? You can plant the grasses all year round, but It is important to avoid periods of frost. Because the root ball of the ornamental grasses is quite large, it is important that it is given sufficient space to establish itself and grow. Not only in containers, as mentioned before, but also in the ground. Always make sure the plant hole is at least twice as large as the root ball. Don't forget to repot ornamental grasses in containers to a larger pot after a significant growth spurt. Non-evergreen ornamental grasses that die back in the winter months should be cut about 20 centimetres above the ground in spring to flourish again a few months later. Give them plenty of fertiliser in spring.

Ground-covering ornamental grasses

Ornamental grasses come in all shapes and sizes. Some grasses stand out above all other plants, and there are ground cover varieties. Ground covers are very attractive and prevent weeds from growing. One example of ornamental grass that covers the ground is the Acorus ogon. This variety likes to be planted in full sun or partial shade and moist, soggy to wet soil. The plant is fairly hardy, attracts butterflies and bees and is disease resistant. Order this beauty online!
