Carex elata 'Aurea'

madpenguinmadpenguin Posts: 2,527

I have 2 Carex elata 'Aurea' growing in my pond.

Would now a good time to re-pot before it sends up new shoots?

They would be replanted in the same pots with fresh soil.

Should I cut it right back?

What would you do?

    Hello madpenguin

    I have two C.elata 'Aurea' growing in my flower borders ; I always lop off all top growth in the Autumn .

    Obviously they're not fussy as to soil requirements ; yours in a pond , mine in a dry border (!)image
