Gardening Tips Please-Pampas Grass

#1
The little woman wants to grow some pampas grass in the front garden.

Has anyone here ever grown it?

Are there any pitfalls in growing pampas grass?

Any information from experienced growers would be very helpful.

Brother my neighbour has some it grows too much, sucks water out so fast a good patch of his lawn is dead. When I cut his grass I treat it roughly but still it persists in living.

Its invasive, and can only be fully removed by burning.

If you have kids, the leaves are damn sharp and will cut if they grab them (as kids do).

If you want it that much grow it in a pot, and dig the pot in, that should prevent it taking over.

Just plant it and strangers will be knocking on your door with advice and tips on rooting, maybe a little help for you and your wife will comeforth.

What about some Lavender much more controllable or maybe hydrangea.
Some bush fuchsia look nice I've one maybe about 20 year old now, been moved three times, quick hacking once a year, that's all it needs.

Pampas grass cuts your fingers to buggery. Our neighbours across the road had some in the 70's, I think they were part of a gardening club as we used to hear people leaving late at night honking their horns and stuf.

Looking to getting into Wife Swapping? I tried it, got a lovely set of golf clubs.

Grows well in Orkney!

Good for a windbreak to grow your real plants behind

You will need a mixing bowl as well for the placement of various sets of car keys. It has nothing to do with the grass of course, but is an integral part of the bigger picture here.

Has pampas grass got connotations with wife-swapping then? You learn something every day. I used to work with a bloke who was a single swinger (his wife didn't know) and used to attend some high profile parties hosted by the legendary "Dirty David" -google him. He used to go as a waiter, naked except for a dickie bow and a mask, serve drinks to the attendees and get sucked off by middle aged trouts with gunts. David went so far as to have a condom machine in his downstairs bog. The mark of a true swinger apparently.

Dirty David used to have one of the best "Reader's Wives" internet sites known to deviancy about 10 years ago.

I nearly pulled my bulb apart browsing that site.
