Pot up plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions for transplanting into beds, borders and containers later on. Water sparingly until pennisetum plants are fully rooted into their containers. When they are well grown, and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant fountain grass in moist, light, well drained soil in full sun.
Take care not to overwater as Pennisetum plants may rot in over-wet soils. Although plants are hardy, they will benefit from the added protection of a dry mulch of bark or straw to protect the crown of the plant over the winter. Once you have enjoyed the autumn and winter interest of this plant, you should cut back any dead foliage and faded flowers in the spring.
