Does anyone want the grass Deschampsia caespitosa?

I bought two pots of this last autumn but do not like the way it seeds about.

how is your disanthus cercidifolius doing i have being looking for one for ages i rang the nursery where you got yours they only have large size at 42 euros 

Rachel Rachel 05 May 2011 09:22:48

Fine thanks, Tina, but still in the pot.

TinaJ TinaJ 05 May 2011 09:25:58

thanks rachel, i think i will treat myself but will keep in pot aswell for a while.

Tina, I didn't keep mine in a pot intentionally. I'm just still trying to work out where it will go. The ground is the correct place for it. You will not get a very tall plant for your €42 unfortunately so it really needs to go in a border. I saw them for sale other places too, similar height and price but you know you're getting good quality from Coolaught. It is a beautiful but expensive tree.

thanks rachel ,never been to coolaught.will take a trip up soon .they have gardens aswell dont they,where you ever there.

They have beautiful gardens, Tina. Open 7 days a week. The Laburnum tunnel should be in flower now. If you are looking for specific plants then ask at the nursery because most things are not on display. If you visit, please put up photos!
