Stipa Tenuissima

KeenOnGreenKeenOnGreen Posts: 1,619

I planted some Stips Tenuissima seed in pots last October, perhaps several inches deep. I know they need a cold spell to break their dormancy and assumed this winter would have done so. There is no sign of any growth. Is there any likelihood of them growing this summer, or is it too late now?

    That sounds very deep to have planted the seeds. IMO they should be surface scattered, with maybe a tiny covering of soil or vermiculite.

    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Thanks Punkdoc. I had a feeling they were too deep. Ironically, they self seeded themselves all over the garden last year but we threw them out as we expected the ones in the pots to grow. You cannot win!
