Can I grow pampus grass in a pot?
I have new plants but I'm not sure where to plant them. If they are in a pot I can move it around to find the best location. I would rather not move anything indoors for the winter. Thanks

Pick a well-draining container for your grass. The pot should be at least 18 inches in diameter.
Fill one-third of the pot with a mixture of potting soil and compost. The ratio should be 50/50.
Place the root ball in the pot. Fill the pot to the rim with the potting soil and compost mixture. The root ball should be completely covered and not protrude from the top of the pot.
Water the grass thoroughly until you see water streaming from the bottom of the pot. Water the plant weekly in the absence of less than 1 inch of natural weekly precipitation.
Fertilize the grass when you first plant it. An all-purpose 10-10-10 fertilizer is ideal.
It's possible you may need to stake the grass while it is getting started.
