    Hi Can anyone advise me please as whether I should cut down to ground level my 2 Stipia Gigantias?

    They were planted last spring (3 litre pot)they quickly settled in but not sure now about when/how much to cut.

    Many Thanks Kathleen

    I'm not 100% sure but I would assume you treat Stipa in much the same way as any other ornamental grass. That is cut down to ground level in spring or slightly earlier if you want to.
