Generalities Harestail grass

These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants have an erect, columnar development.
Fertilization Harestail grass
Annual plants have a quite vigorous development and need, during the spring, a continuous fertilization; when placing them let’s add some humus or mature manure or some slow release granular fertilizer to the ground. During the spring months we suggest mixing some fertilizer for flowering plants to the irrigating water every 20-30 days.
Watering Harestail grass
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.
