Came across this interesting concept this morning: http://www.greatgardenplants.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&page... Talk about instant gratification! Would be fun to do a doghouse roof or something with them, but pretty pricey. Also, the company doesn't really have a very good rating. But I still think it's a cool concept!

I've always gotten good service from them. They are high but send large plants though.

This looks exactly like what I bought last year from our local big box store (Freddies). They were half flats of "sedum sod" and I bought one and plopped it onto an old patio chair that was otherwise heading for the trash. I hope they carry it again this year because I have another chair to do. Alternately, I could do the other chair with semps instead Whistling .

The regular price for the half flat was 9.99 but I got it on sale for 7.99.

Of course I forgot to post the pic I just went out and took:

Thumb of 2013-02-25/pardalinum/7ca0b7

Compared to what I paid the 15 x 20" sheets from Great Garden Plants are a little cheaper, being a bit bigger than a standard flat (I think).

Good to know you got good service from them Clint. Thumbs up

Since you didn't have to pay any shipping Connie, it probably ended up being a better deal. The chair looks nice - like it took a long time to get all those plants growing so good! Smiling

I hadn't thought about the shipping. The nice thing is I could pick from what was available. They didn't all look alike.

Clint had posted about it in another thread, but that was the first I saw of it. It sure is a nice one! But $$$

Connie, fun that you actually had a choice of different mats!

Or you can create your own mats with leaves and cutting from your existing sedum. Just plant/sow them thick.

I don't have enough sedum varieties to make these. They use so many different colors. It really is beautiful. I might someday though!

Buy one small pot of each, tear into pieces and scatter over the surface that you will be using as a sod backing. Hmmm, wonder what that would be?
It is amazing how quickly they grow. Keep moist until they root and get good root systems going. Hurray!

I'm all ears! Yay, I want to know what Clint is up to. He can be so secretive, then he pounces on us with something new. Hurray! Lovey dubby

I sure do love that sedum sod Greg. I love all the colors and textures.

I was just joking about the semp sod. I just ordered so many Semps this year so far that I probably will have to make a semp sod to go on my roof when they start multiplying. Rolling on the floor laughing I am working on something new though. I plan to do this project while I'm on Spring Break this coming week. I think it's worth an article. It's going to be nice. It does have semps on it too.

I just noticed that Spring Break for me is when the Sempervivum stuff happens here. I think it was meant to be! LOL
