There are the low-covering and the medium-high species and those that draw attention to themselves from afar as true giants. Whether small or large - which planting time is ideal for ornamental grasses?

Ornamental grasses are preferably planted in spring

Spring planting is preferable

If ornamental grasses are planted in autumn, they will soon face frost. As a result, they can no longer take root. They need winter protection in the form of brushwood or foliage. Spring planting (February to April) is therefore preferable.

Not only the time, but also the place is crucial

But not only the time for the planting is decisive, but also the location. Depending on the species, ornamental grasses are suitable for:

  • Rock gardens, heather gardens, prairie gardens, perennial beds
  • shady locations: sedges, snow marbel, dwarf bamboo
  • Sunny locations: Pennisetum, Chinese reed, pampas grass

tips

Non-hardy species that come from tropical regions should only be planted out from April/May when there is no longer any frost.
