Planting out grass seedlings

northerner_on(Z5A ONCanada)June 6, 2013

I have grown grass a few times before but always have difficulty deciding how to plant out and usually never get around to it. I have two containers of winter sown grass: bunny tails, and ornamental millet. They have been growing for months, but are still little, fragile things, not grass-like at all. Do I plant them out HOS and hope for the best? If I wait a bit more will they get tall and more fibrous? Do I tease them apart and plant them singly? Just don't know and am not afraid to ask. Help please?

I'd plant them out 'Hunk-o-Seedling' style, and do it as soon as you can. They'll grow faster in the ground than in your containers.

Thanks, Don. Will do it as soon as it stops raining. We have been having non-stop rain for the past 3 days and the gardens are all mud. We thought we were having a head start...it was just too good to be true. Happy gardening.
