Greenlee's Hybrid Moor Grass Care
You can grow Greenlee's Hybrid Moor Grass in full sun to partial shade. It requires free-draining and moderately fertile soil. Irrigate for the first year after planting, after which it can cope with dry spells. As it favors a drier substrate, it is best to avoid overwatering. To give this grass a boost, you can apply a slow-release general fertilizer in spring.
The Greenlee's Hybrid Moor Grass is wonderfully low maintenance. All you need to do is shear back the old foliage and stems in late winter before new growth appears in the spring.
Greenlee's Hybrid Moor Grass Spacing
