Japanese Blood Grass

I’ve some bloodgrass and I’ve found it not to hard to keep.Its doesn’t like very wet soil but good drainage.It can take full sun or partial shade.I normally cut just above ground level in February.Looks stunning in clumps.Seeds could be hard to come by as it rarely flowers.

Feeding

Hi, just reading the recent post on high nitrogen feeding.I’ve just been given some “palm booster and palm focus “.
I would be interested if anyone has any experience of these products,as I’am a bit wary of using these straight away.
As I’am a bit of a newbie.
Thks in advance Dave.

Hi, from Hertfordshire

Hello Dave. Welcome to HTUK. icon_cheers Mexican grass trees or Dasylirion are fantastic feature plants but you need to part with a small fortune to get one with a sizeable trunk; they are so slow.
