Q: Does this grass need to be cut back every Fall?

Asked by: Denby - 3/22/2016
A: No, it doesn't need to be cut back in the fall. To give it a neater appearance you may want to trim it in the spring before the new growth starts, but this is not necessary either.

Q: When does Prairie Dropseed develop seeds, and how does one pick the seed for planting. Also what is lifespan of seeds? THANK YOU.

Asked by: Gloria - 11/9/2015
A: We harvest the seed between mid-October and early November. An easy way to collect the seed by hand is to strip the seed heads into a 5 gallon bucket. Gloves may be helpful. It doesn't seem to have a long shelf life. We sow fresh seed every year as it seems to lose viability after 1 or 2 years of dry storage.
