Grasses

Safe and easy transplantation

No wonder ornamental grasses are more and more popular with consumers. They provide year-round interest in borders. Propagation is normally by division or tissue culture. The plantlets are raised in small containers under glass or in tunnels. Jiffy’s solutions for this stage include our flexible Preforma Plugs and biodegradable Pots. Both make transplantation safe and easy.

Broad portfolio of growing media

Grasses are usually matured on outdoor container fields, or indoors on ebb and flow tables. Choose from the growing media that best suits your favored cultivation and irrigation methods from Jiffy’s broad portfolio. For example, your crop will need stronger or weaker levels of capillary action depending on how they are grown.  

Attractive coloring and vertical growth

We advise a substrate rich in organic matter, calcium, and trace elements. It should also have good water-holding properties. Ornamental grasses need relatively high levels of fertilizer and a pH of 5.5 to 6. Volcanic sand or pumice can be added for their silicon content. This will give your grasses attractive coloring and vertical growth thanks to their strong cell walls.
