Baby carex going spare


I finally got around to repotting my Japanese Sedge, and got 14 babies off it. All had long roots, so potted them and hoped for the best.

Two months later, they still look okay so I’m assuming that they’re big enough to leave home.

I’ve never sent a plant by post before, so I’ll start with a couple, and see how they go before sending out any more.



If anyone who wants one will pm me their address, I’ll send one off. This is all totally new to me, so I’ve got to learn how to pack them properly. If you let me know when they arrive, how good the packaging was (or wasn’t) I’ll know for next time.

ps! i should have said: it’s
Carex morrowii ‘Ice Dance’ (Japanese sedge ‘Ice Dance’)

shoot! page:
(stupid long url, but RHS had never heard of it, sigh)

lol and here’s the link to the GoY search results:

shee, and I thought the Shoot! one was long!!! it might be easier to type “carex ice dance” into search, that’s what i did
