This isn't a question or showing any plants YET Lovey dubby Thumbs up But i wanted to put this out on a forum and not in a private T-mail.I hope that's ok to you.You deserve the public thank you!!!

I have had a few plants sent, holiday cactus & black pussy willow from Jb,some epi's and i have sent cuttings but BEV.YOU WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND ANYTHING EXPECTED.I cried when i seen all the beauties you sent me!! Crying I wish i could do something or you would please tell me something you need or want. Lovey dubby Angel

The mail lady blew the horn yesterday evening Hurray! (she didn't want to get out in the rain)I ran out bare footed Hurray! Hurray! because i knew it was from Bev.Perfectly wrapped & packaged perfected nothing damaged.It's STILL POURING & cold.So can i lay the sedum on top of a pot of succulent mix barely damp or dry? It's to wet outside right now.

What should i do with the semp's many have large & small babies attached or not? Do the same set them onto of pot of dry or BARELY DAMP succulent soil?

Yall know me i don't have to say it but it's me i'm going to anyway PICTURE TO COME!!! :hurray:

I was fixen to hit finish & bam i had an idea my roots replace the dirt and will the sedums grow along them?
If i raise the rocks i could put some sedum and semps by them?? Been thinking they needed raising anyway Shrug!

BEV,bout how tall do the sedum get? I don't want to put them with any that get to tall wouldn't want them to get lost in there I'm planting a patch of S. 'john creech' & 'sarmentosum'I was going to add S.'limelight' 4" and S.'lizard' 4" as well.

Sorry so long but i talk faster than my brain goes or vica versa or both Hurray! Hurray! Lovey dubby Angel Group hug
Sticking tongue out Sticking tongue out

I'm so glad you feel better and have other semps to take care of. I hope they make out OK because I wanted to add to your already beautifully started plant bed. Again, thank you for all that you have shared with us: your thoughts, curiousity, enthusiasm and countless photos! Group hug

I agree with both posts. The one from Jelinda about Bev, and the one from Bev about Jelinda.

Thank you so much for sharing with us Jelinda. That bed is looking beautiful.
I love the idea of having the sedum grow along the roots. Thumbs up

That's great news Jojoe! These guys really are pretty adaptive! I kept neglecting to get some shade on some of my little/new ones, and then our weather cooled back down, and these guys are just looking fine! Hurray!
