Planting Miscanthus grass
I am going to plant 5 good sized Miscanthus grasses this weekend and need to amend the soil. I went to Home Depot and they have large bags of the Miracle Grow soil amendment in two types. One is for flowers and vegetables the other for trees and shrubs. Both have Slow release fertilizer. Would either of these be a good choice? I was leaning toward the one for trees and shrubs but am undecided and unsure.
The soil is a bit heavy in the planting site but not too bad. I'd call it a clay loam. But its at the top of a slope so I need it to be more porous and receptive so the water won't just run downhill. I plan to put in a couple 70lb bags of all purpose sand divided among the planting holes as well.
