Product Description

2 Gallon Grasses

2 Gallon grasses go back as long as man has grown crops…! The first grass ever grown was known as “Poaceae” and it was edible grains.

Planting

Ideally, it would be best if the area you wish to put your 2 gallon grass pots was prepared in the Fall. You can plant either in the Spring or Fall. Planting in the Spring allows the grass to develop a strong root system before winter comes. If you plant in the Fall, it is best to do it before the end of September.

Before you plant your grass, look at how much light the area is getting. Grasses require full-sun, which means areas that get at least 6 hours of light.

Watering

Grasses need to be well-watered to help them get established. Once they are established, they’ll need about an inch of water every week. They need to be in good drainage soil.

Fertilizer

Grasses need to be fed with a fertilizer that is higher in Nitrogen!

Pruning

It’s good to leave grasses intact until Spring to prevent crown rot during late winter warm-ups and early Spring frost. You can prune until late March. Always prune 20” and tie it up if you don’t like the look all winter.

Dividing Grasses

When dividing your grasses, April is a prime time to do it—the middle of Spring. The temperatures are perfect and the plant is not stressed. You may want to divide your grass because it has gotten too big or overgrown, you want to rejuvenate new growth and cut it back to a smaller size, or you’d like to relocate the grass to a different spot in your yard.

Using a spade, you’ll want to dig up a deep, wide circle around the plant. Then take a tooth saw or a sharper spade, and cut the grass in half or to your liking, to create 2 plants. When re-planting the grass into the ground, add in Bumper Crop Soil Builder as an amendment to the soil. This will help to rejuvenate the soil! You can also top dress the soil with the Bumper Crop to help push the nutrients into the soil.
