Pampas Grass Pink Feather 20 seeds
Pampas grass prefers a damp, well-drained, sandy or loamy soil. Succeeds in dry soils. Prefers a sunny sheltered position. Very tolerant of maritime exposure. This species is hardy to about -20°c. Pampas grass is occasionally cultivated in some areas for its fibre which is used in making paper. Plants grow well as a focal point in a lawn and they also succeed in quite coarse grass.
Sow the pink pampas grass seeds February/April inside or in a heated greenhouse, on a surface of a good seed compost. Use a tray and fine seed compost, put the tray in a polyethylene bag and try to keep at a temperature around 15-18 Celsius; germination takes 2-3 weeks. Keep the soil moist.
When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse.
Plant them out into their permanent positions in the summer, when large and strong enough to handle the wind.
