I have Pampas grass in my garden. It has stems but no plumes. What could be the problem. Many thanks.

    Is this every year or just last year David?

  • Just last year !

  • Almost certainly the lack of sunshine we had last year.  Fingers crossed we get better weather this year and hopefully it will then produce plumes for you again.  I had a huge clump until a couple of years ago but it outgrew its space and began to die, so I helped it on its way with a bit of glyphosate.  The stump will take years to rot away though and is too tough to remove without a tree stump grinder.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
