Well, you might be amazed at just how effortless it is to grow weeping lovegrass if you stick to these three simple rules. Firstly you need to make a decision about is which bed in your garden you're going to grow your weeping lovegrass.

This is as easy as raking the area to break up the soil. That's all there is to it. If you intend to use this ornamental grass as a background we advise that you broadcast it. This is easily achieved with a coffee can or something similar that has holes punched in its bottom. You should also use a carrier. White laundry detergent granules or white sand works well (you can see any places you've missed). If you're growing weeping lovegrass as an accent between flowers and bushes or in a container you only need to drop in a little (generally what comes in a packet) in each planter box or selected garden bed. Regardless of where you are planting your grass, once sown rake over it very lightly to guarantee the seed is coated by about 1/4 inch of soil. The ultimate action concerns watering. For about the first four weeks you need to keep the soil moist by lightly watering it every day. As soon as the plant has become established watering once every week will suffice. As you can see, successfully growing weeping lovegrass is not a intricate or difficult procedure. In fact, it is really a very easy process. Moreover, once your weeping lovegrass has become established it is just a extremely low maintenance plant and extremely effective in the role of an ornamental grass.
