The box arrived early and we placed the roots in the groundwithin two days. Everything looks good! We just now wait for the results next spring!
I was shocked at the appearance of my order. It is hard to grow from seed and this looked preety good. Nice and green. Some turning brown but at least the root is in the ground. I ordered like 400. That is expected. I got more than what I ordered as well.
Very happy with the quality of the sedge. Looking forward to it becoming as thick as the pictures!
Many of the individual plants were intertwined at the roots making it difficult to sort out by individual plants. I came up a little short with my plantings.
This is an excellent product. Really different.
love this stuff
love the way this looks
this looks amazing
In my opinion, not for an inexperienced Gardner....the grasses were shipped in a gallon zip lock bag which was weird, so they have to be divided up but will see how they do after some time.
