How can I help this plant?

I am new to grasses.
I ordered a Deschampsia Goldtau from Secret Gardening Club and the sent me the wrong plant. I have just received this one as a replacement. The pot is dry as dust and I can only find 4 or 5 green strands.
What is the best way to help it, please


  • I can only suggest that you email Secret Gardening Club with your image showing how the plant looked on arrival and say it is not fit for purpose and can they can send another FOC replacement. You could try to rescue it by cutting out all the dead parts, immersing the rootball in water until it is wet through. Drain, then pot on into slightly larger pot - 2" wider and 2" deeper. Keep well-watered but not waterlogged, and see if it recovers.

    I agree with rachelQrtJHBjb. You should not be expected to accept such a poor quality plant. That is the problem with buying on-line, you do not have chance to select healthy plants. Visit a Garden Centre instead where you should get advice as well as a decent plant next time.
