At the request of my friend Miriam Goldberger, co-founder and owner of Wildflower Farm, I have sown Eco-Lawn grass seed in my forced tulips, which are coming up now. Eco-Lawn is a fescue grass that, according to the WF site, is drought-tolerant, can be left unmown, and grows in shade. I can't attest to these claims, because I don't have a lawn and have never tried to grow or maintain one.
But this seemed like an interesting project. So far I like the effect of this grass. I have grown it in pots outside—again, just for fun—and of course it gets much thicker in those conditions. For grass grown indoors in winter, I think it's doing pretty well.
I'll post again when we have blooms on this and the other pots of tulips/grass I have going.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on February 18, 2012 at 9:56 am, in the category Uncategorized.
