Help! Starting grasses indoors during winter!
Hi, just a very humble beginner... Am really attracted to the contrasts of ornamental grasses mixed in with flowers...
I dont have lots of space & live in mostly shady area, so haven't invested in a lot of seeds... However, I have grabbed the tops of a number of local and neighbor's plants.... What do I need to do to start these beauties indoors? (I do start my tomatoes with grow lights in winter here)
About when should I start? Last frost is about 1rst week May..
Unsure if these are perennials... Suspect they are.
Winter here today is 35 below windchill...
***! How to extract seeds from these tops, planting soil, fertilizer moisture, etc?
Do I need a lot of light? I live mostly in a woods... Perennial garden gets sun from 10:00-11:00 AM to about 5-6 PM in summer...
Is there a seed exchange like the tomatoes for different or hardier varieties?
What considerations should I be worried about? Is there problems with grasses taking over garden?
Anything else you can think of to help this puzzled old guy...
Thanks, "May trouble always be a stranger to you! ...or at least only a nodding acquaintence!"
