Received these 3 weeks ago, little did I know our temps would go into the mid to upper 90’s right after I planted them. One good tip was to be sure and mulch around the plants when you plant them, keeps the moisture in! After 3 weeks, the plants are doing great! It looks like maybe one or two may not make it but the rest are doing great, I’ve been babying them with the hot weather but only watering them every two days. The plants arrived healthy and I planted them the same day they arrived. These are for a ground cover about 35 x 8 feet in size. After only 3 weeks, many of the plants are already sending out runners and spreading out. I tilled in nitrogen into the soil about 6” deep. Well drained soil is a must for these to get started, very happy with the results so far!

The minute these went into the ground they perked right up. I'm excited to see how well they take.
