Help A vole (or something) has eaten all the roots of my sedum Chocolate Drop (stonecrop). I have two stems with no roots.
Can I root the stems? Can I root from the leaves?

You can root the stems. Don't throw out the base, you would be surprised at what might grow there in the spring.

Just repotting my sedum. It grows throughout the garden, however, wherever a bean has come to rest. Delightful.

Hi Glen. I love you photo of Sedum rubrotinctum. Sure wish I could grow it in the ground like you do.

Looks great Glen! Lynn these are 'marginal' in your area so you could try some in a sunny spot with protection, maybe in one of the cement block holes - but I'd use something super quick draining. Try some, it should do ok unless you get a really deep frost. And because of the cold weather they turn a very bright red!
I tip my hat to you.

They seem to make it through winter in a container on my covered deck, but don't think they would survive in our months of winter and spring cold and rain.
But I will take some and give it a try Greg.

Lynn you are right that the wet part is rough on them - mine are under a covered area which isn't heated just dry Thumbs up

This is some Sedum rubrotinctum that have sprung up in the garden. The clumps are very hard to weed, however, because the beans drop off easily. I have been trying to use long tongs.

Glen, another great photo.
I really will give this a try Greg. Might plant some in one of the cinder block holes with something to shield it from rain.

Glen I do like the pictures - it is hard to understand your frustration with this 'weed' since it is one I'd love to have growing all over LOL - Confused But I understand - anything out of control is a weed! Whistling

Hello Greg. No, I too like the sedum growing wherever it likes, too. The problem is when weeds grow amongst and through the clumps. Trying to pull out say, white root or couch, leads to the beans falling off because they are fragilely attached.

Ahha! Got it! Yes that is tricky with that one, they are very delicate - I'm not showing any photos of mine because it isn't looking great right now! Too many of the beads dropped off! It'll bounce back, just need to give it some time! Thumbs up

Okay, on my way out to transplant some of my Sedum rubrotinctum. I will test some of it out in the raised beds to see if it can survive out winter and spring conditions.

I moved mine outside a couple weeks ago - last year I brought it in, because I loved how lovely it looked, but by the time I moved it back outside it was looking terrible because it is too dry in my apartment (humidity in the air not actual rain)
I will keep it on a shelf covered with light plastic - it does great. If you have anything to put above it, to keep off some of the main rain, this will be good! I like these types of experiments. Also it is always going to be a test, because it just matters how cold a winter you get each year! Thumbs up

I will see what I can come up with Greg to keep it covered during the rainy season. Good idea. Thumbs up

Thank you Lyn. I just substituted a landscape photo for the first photo. After all these years I never done one before!
