I planted some of these grasses last year but didn't cut them down in the autumn or winter. They have been a lovely edition to the garden but are now too tall and are hiding other plants. Can I trim them now.

Hi, Jan,
Where do you live? I had to cut mine (I live in Southern California) because they were shedding their seeds everywhere and crowding other plants. Here, though, they will sprout and fill out again in a few months. I do need to divide mine this autumn as they are starting to rot in the middle (they form thick clumps here - when I lived in England, they never got this wide of a clump!). They really need dividing every year, every two at the most.
