Trish!
You really presented Young's in a very fair light. Stating your order, their promise, delivery, packaging. Top Notch! If I could keep those little guys alive here in the desert I'd give it a go.

Thanks!

Charleen, I do have shade but still the semps struggle. Crying I'm ok with sedum and succulents for the most part but not the semps. If they are in containers the heat alone, shade or not, baked the roots. The dirt gets HOT. Also, whether they are in the ground or container the birds are constantly digging and pulling out just about anything they please. I had a 12 inch pot covered in small sedum. Dense. The birds ripped out every single little leaf. Grumbling

I'm trying some semps Becky gave to me indoors. I don't allow birds into the house Whistling

Susie,

I killed quite a few i the last couple of years because of the heat issue. Crying
After much experimentation around the place, I've found some areas where they thrive, so I'm thrilled.

The tender succulents and sedums have been my obsession this year- yum!

I love sedum and succulents, too. I loved my mom's semps. But, she lived in Menlo Park CA and you can grow just about anything there successfully! Even Daphne, my FAVORITE shrub.
