I cut my pampas grass and it looked perfect. I turned it upside down to dry about2 weeks ago, and when I went to check on it, the ends were curling. How do you stop that from happening, or is that normal for some types?
Spraying with hair spray can help! Do this before hanging to dry, and making sure to keep it out of the sun will ensure that it dries more slowly.
And when should they be pruned? My pampas are 3 years old, is too much water bad as they didn't flower a year ago. Thank you,
I only found reference to pampas grass blooming once per season, in late summer. The female pampas grass has showier blooms.

I have started to pull out the dead stuff down to the ground. Will the center grow back? It looks silly to have new growth on the outside with a dead center. Can you help?
It just means it needs to be divided. I suggest digging it up and replanting the healthy sections. Here is how:
The page states that moving the pampas grass must be done in the spring. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/pampas-grass/moving-pampas-grass.htm What happens if I move it now early fall, I live in Tacoma Washington.
It should be fine if you transplant now. You still have plenty of time for the roots to reestablish before cold weather sets in.
We bought fr you last Sept. It had one bloom. I pruned it in Feb. It has grown to 8ft plus but no blooms? ???
You didn't buy it from us as we don't sell plants or merchandise.
If you haven't fertilized, try giving it a balanced fertilizer in spring (such as 10-10-10) after its annual pruning. Make sure it is getting full sun or part sun.
