Serum Reflexum

harmonyharmony Posts: 325
Hi, I have got some Sedum Reflexum that has self seeded in my front garden last year and I'm wanting to know if it would be easy to transplant elsewhere. I have a couple of areas where they could go, one being quite shady with little sun that could do with some ground cover, the other area is sunny south/West facing with normal/c!ay soil.. Thanks

    Yes, free plants are always good as long as they're not invasive pests.   Water them first so you minimise disturbance to their roots.  If they're very small it may be worth potting them up and nurturing them so they can recover, grow new roots and get stronger and then plant them out in a few weeks.

    In these troubled times it's a pity that the OP made that particular mistake in the title of their post.

    Wee bit unnecessary.  :/
    R and D are very close on a keyboard, even closer on a smaller device.

    Well technically the plant is petrosedum rupestre so OP was way out anyway :# 
    Either way it will pretty much grow anywhere that gets some sun and has decent drainage but the sunnier the better. I find it grows better if it's sat on a top-dressing of gravel rather than directly on soil but you can also lay rocks over the area and grow it in the cracks in between. I've been throwing cuttings (literally) into other pots that have a gravel top-dress and leaving them to root themselves. They're about as low maintenance as any plant can get and great for pollinators.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    No worries.  Hope they grow well for you.

    There's absolutely no need for you to apologise @harmony :)

    Hope you can move them and enjoy them in their new location
