ORNAMENTAL grasses come into their own in the second half of summer and, if left alone, provide excellent material for wind and frost to work on during the winter. A catalogue produced by Diana Grenfell and Roger Grounds at Apple Court, Hordle Lane, Hordle, Lymington, Hampshire SO41 0HU (0590 642130) offers a wide selection. Trevor Scott has a new list this year. He is at Thorpe Park Cottage, Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex CO16 0HN (0255 861308). Mr Scott's garden is open by appointment until mid-November. Apple Court is open daily (except Tuesday and Wednesday) from 9.30 till 5.30. Both nurseries offer a design service and do mail order. Plants are best sent out in autumn or next spring.
