Planting Ornamental Grass in Containers

Many people are surprised to learn ornamental grasses can be planted in containers. The important things to consider when planting grasses in containers are drainage, soil content/fertilization, pot size and watering.

*You must plant your ornamental grasses in pots that have drainage holes. If you do not, the roots will rot.

*You should use liquid fertilizers on ornamental grasses that are contained in a pot. This will keep the soil vigorous and healthy. You should fertilize the soil at least once a month.

*You should plant your ornamental grasses in pots which allow them room to grow.

*Water your ornamental grasses frequently.
