I brought 3 young ponytail grasses early this year and it's just been cut down for winter but in the process of being in full bloom...the seeds from it have been drifting along the edge of the drive in the gravel and small seeds have set.

Sure, just cut the seed heads sooner. Non-viable seeds cannot sprout. But that would kind of defeat the purpose of the grass. Might try a vacuum cleaner.

Hi Chuck the seeds are in the white part, so really its cutting them out when I see them develop but like you say it does defeat the purpose of the grass and it's beauty but nice one about an hoover...great tip (y)

:eek::D! Or chop off the seeds and that might defeat the purpose of buying the plant! LOL! You can't win. When you haven't got it, it's an objet de désire! Ahhhh! When you've got it, it becomes a thug! :devil: Grrrrrrrrrrrr!
