'Avalanche' and 'Malepartus' are in the worst condition, with up to 75% of the foliage completely shot. The Acorus is in the best shape.
I'm cutting off dead foliage, and teasing out the root systems well. I'll keep them in my bright, indirect sun carport for a week of so, before hardening them off and moving them outside. The pots will be buried in nursery beds for winter.
Any tips and tricks for bringing these poor critters back to life will be greatly appreciated.
I had a near death experience with grasses from Wayside Gardens. Sheesh I don't know why I ever order form those guys. Anyway, I did about the same as donn except I used ortho UpStart 1/2 strength weekly for the first three weeks. I also don't water with chlorinated water. I use a hose end Systems IV filter which takes out the chlorine. I think it stresses the plants less. If you are interested in a chlorine filter
has a selection as well as
under chlorine control.
