Can anyone give me advice on starting Pink Pampas from seed please? It is already July so I may have missed the boat for this year. I am in SE Texas so our growing season is quite long. I would like to use it along the fence as a privacy hedge and I don't know quite how to go about it. How many seeds to a pot for a really big plant?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

sorry can't help on the seed side of it, but if you have a long area to cover I would recommend you contact a wholesale nursery to see if they would sell you enough (provided you need a large quanity) starter plants, that way it won't take as long for it to cover a provide the privacy you are looking for.

My privacy hedge took about 2 years to really fill in, then afterwards when I cut them down in spring they would be back up to 6.5 feet high every time.

Best to you on your hedge.
