How do I prepare the soil before planting ornamental grasses?

planting tips

Though most grasses are able to tolerate less than ideal conditions, they should be given a good start. To plant, dig a planting hole to a depth of at least 35 cm and the same in width. Backfill with a combination of 60% topsoil, 30% peat moss, 10% rotted manure and a handful of bonemeal.
Add a water-soluble transplant fertilizer at the time of planting and follow up with two applications of 15-30-15 water-soluble fertilizer every three weeks. Check moisture levels each week for the first five or six weeks.
