Dead Clump In Ornamental Grass – How Do I Regrow

Q: I haven’t pruned my ornamental grass for five years. Now the clump is dead in the middle. If I prune the grass low and flat, as you recommend, will grass grow back in the center?

A: I guess it’s theoretically possible but there won’t be rapid regrowth. The easiest thing to do is to dig up the entire clump, divide it into four equal sections and replant (or share) each in a sunny spot.
