Our list of Ornamental Grasses from around the World



We highly recommend you start your ornamental grass seeds inside and then transplant them outside as "plugs". To create a plug, find a plug starting nursery flat that has at least 50-72 cells in the flat, fill the flat with a good seed starting mix, plant 5-7 grass seeds in cell. Once the grass seedlings are a couple inches tall, or have become root bound in the cell, it is time to plant outside. This will greatly increase your success rate and give you healthy, vigorous grass crops in about half the time of starting them outside.
