Miscanthus sinensis Red Chief - Pruning
Hi, this is my first post as I’m quite new to gardening am I’m finding some advice I read too general for my knowledge so I’m here for some help!! Last autumn I ‘designed’ a raised gravel garden and researched what plants would be suitable and planted them in the autumn. So far so good I think, however some pruning advice gets me a tad confused ...... firstly, when it states cutback in spring, I then need to ask ‘when is spring?’ Is it February, March, beginning or the end of the month?? I wish they would say ‘prune on 15th March and then I’d know 🧐😂 I really want to look after my plants and not mess it up. Advice states to cut dead foliage/flower heads etc from Miscanthus Sinensis Red Chief in the spring, but the foliage looks so lovely at the moment blowing in the wind and giving some interest. What would happen if I didn’t cut it back? Help and advice would be much appreciated, thank you.
