Our 3-year-old big bluestem clumps (4 of them) are spreading invasively and threatening our 3 clumps of Karl Forester grasses. How do we:
1) reduce the size of the 4 clumps of bluestem so as to be able keep them in our 3-year-old grass garden?
2) control the spread of the bluestem clumps once we get them into a smaller, manageable size?
We really like the bluestems, but they’re invading and overshadowing everything else in our grass garden. Our neighbor gave us the bluestems 3 years ago fully grown from her own land. Thank you.
