Festuca 'Buddy Blue'
Blue Fescue. A hardy, compact and easy to grow grass, that gives year round interest either mixed with other plants or on its own. The silvery blue foliage forms a rounded tuft, with sprays of small beige flower spikes in late summer. Good plant for patio containers.
Plant into any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Trim away any old foliage and flower stems in spring, and feed with a good general fertiliser.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
