Harvesting : : Allow the Bunny Tails grass to fully mature on the plant. The seed heads will turn a delicate cream colour and soften as they age. Ensure that the seed heads are completely dry before harvesting. This is important to prevent mold or rot during storage Use clean and sharp scissors or pruning shears to cut the seed heads from the plant. Cut just below the seed head to ensure you capture the entire cluster of seeds. Place the cut seed heads in a paper bag or container to catch any seeds that may fall during handling. Allow the collected seed heads to further dry in a warm, well-ventilated area for a few days to ensure they are completely dry before storing.: Once fully dried, store the Bunny Tails ornamental grass seeds in a cool, dry place in a labeled envelope or container until you are ready to sow them.
