Q.dwarf fountain grass

Zone Zone 5 | Anonymous added on October 17, 2016 | Answered

I have dwarf fountain grass planted in a big pot. I want to cut off the grass and bring it inside for decoration. Can I do this? I want to bring the pot indoors so it can be taken outdoors next year again. Can I also do this and when should I prune it?

Yes, you can cut the grass off at about 3 to 4 inches above the soil line.
You can leave the pots in a sheltered area or even a garage for the summer. Make sure you check the pots occasionally to make sure they have not dried out completely. I like to check them about once a month and add a small amount of moisture if the soil is cracking.
Place the pots back outdoors in the spring after danger of frost.
