Is this a possibility??
I became interested in grasses in 2006. Planted 200+ grasses in 2006 and 2007. I was really disappointed in 2007 with the amount of flopping I had, particularly with my panicums. After researching the problem, I think my planting medium was too rich. I was planting in clay and could not believe they would survive in such poor soil so I proceeded to over improve with rich compost.
Now this year--for the first year there is no sign of flopping--even after a heavy rains
As grasses mature do you think they tend to flop less? Have they used up all my compost nutrients and not flopping now because the richness has decreased?
