Sow the pen­nise­tum

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

This feath­er­top grass is best grown as a half-hardy an­nual, although plants may sur­vive winter in milder parts of the coun­try. Don’t give up on plants too quickly in spring – they tend to be slow starters. If you want to be cer­tain of keep­ing plants year to year, try pot­ting them up and over­win­ter­ing in a frost-free place. Sow seed in a prop­a­ga­tor un­der cover from Fe­bru­ary to April, only plant­ing out af­ter all risk of frost has passed. The fluffy cream seed­heads cry out to be touched, so try to plant some within pat­ting dis­tance. Plants will of­ten self-seed.
