Arundo donax, a new look!

Amost all year round Arundo donax can look a little untidy. This is what I suggest as part as your garden spring clean. Remove the sheaths by cutting them with sharp secators, in a circular movement, just above a node. Control the cutting action not to damage the stem, that wouldn’t look good!

Removing the sheaths exposes the beautiful green colour of the stems.
