Pampas Grass 140206

Was given three off-cuts via Freecycle. In pots for now till I can decide where they're going to go

looked it up to find botanical name: saw a link to Wiki, and was intruiged to read the following:

"A widespread urban myth is that pampas grass is used by swingers to advertise their presence to other swingers in the area. The most commonly repeated version states that in the UK and Ireland a patch of pampas grass is planted somewhere in the front garden to act as a signal to passersby that swingers live in the home"

A lot of my neighbours are growing this plant in their front gardens - this road must be a hotbed of sin!!
