The slips can be potted up or planted directly into the ground.

The roots and stems have been cut back to induce new growth and further development.

Care and maintenance
 
  
  • If planted in poor soil, fertilise twice a year (once early and once late in summer).
 
  • Control weeds around the grass until it’s established. Vetiver is very sensitive to glyphosate.
 
  • Trim the grass every year to encourage new growth to a height of 500mm at the end of winter.
 
  • Young plants are palatable to sheep, cattle and particularly horses, therefore protect the grass from them for at least the first two summers.
