What do I do with pampas grass?!?!
We've just moved to a new house, and there is a large pampas grass growing in the back garden. I've never dealt with one before and I don't know what to do with it. Right now, the "feathers" are on brown stalks and are bent over on the ground. Much of the plant is brown, but there are lots of green leaves as well.
What should I do with the plant? I read on another forum that you can cut it down to about 12" in the spring. Is it okay to do this? I'd just like to clean it up because it looks pretty unsightly right now. If I do cut it down, does anyone know how long it'll take before it fills out?
