I have a 14 ft. by 6 ft edge of lawn (after sidewalk) where I would like to plant perennial peanut - could you tell me how many plants I need and any special planting instructions. Also, does Home Depot sell this plant?

Perennial peanut makes an excellent groundcover and is usually sold in flats or rolls (like sod) but you may also be able to find it in individual pots. In general, cut a flat into 3-inch squares and plant them 8-12 inches apart. The plants will grow together in a single growing season. January through March is the best time to plant perennial peanut and you should find them in your garden center beginning in January.
