Hi Kirsten. You just added me as a friend on here with the suggestion that I might be a repository of garden / orchid information. However, my gardening knowledge is quite limited having simply dabbled in it from year to year. These days I don't spend much time doing it beyond growing micro greens and caring for my fruit trees, so I would advise seeking advice from some other more informed sources on this web sight, or a man called Wally Richards who is based in Parmerston North http://www.gardenews.co.nz/page1.htm
Your clippings are warming my compost right now! Thanks a lot, Kirsty. I was checking it, stirring it up a bit and noticed it was a bit dry so gently watered the compost and steam started rising! Brilliant. You'll have to come and visit, see the final resting home of your grass!
