Pennisetum advena rubrum

I bought a large pot of this grass last summer, not knowing that it’s tender. In late autumn I’ve cut the whole plant back, split it into about nine small clumps and overwintered those in a heated guest room. Most of the clumps have survived and have grown a bit. (I now know that I should cut and divide grasses in spring.)
- Can I start hardening it off in a cold frame or should I wait?
- Can I cut it back again?
- What would be the best way of overwintering this grass?
Photo to follow soon...
I wouldn't start harding it off it far to early treat like annuals. I wouldn't cut new fresh growth but its up to you, you've got plenty to experiment with.
I will treat them as I do my pelargoniums then, which are also crammed on windowsills. I was just hoping I could make some room for some seedlings. A heated greenhouse is what I need.
