Judy, if you want the wreath to look complete from the get-g0 you will need 200 plugs. Do you expect these plants free or are you going to offer postage, which may help you get free plants. Do you have any thing to even start with? Try to put it together in Sept. so it will root down in time for the winter, think about how you are going to water it and store it while gowing. Decide if you are going to use all plants that grow in the sun, and tell people that you can only use cold hardy species. You need to tell them what materials you can use so they will know what to send. Norma

Norma, I am new at making this kind of wreath and I dont know that much about succulents excet sedums..I do have ground cover type sedums and I found that to have the wreath look compact I would need succulents with sedums..Im asking for trades or plants for postage if at all possible...actaully just putting out a request and seeing what I can come up with..I think this will be a project that will take awhile to finish and it will be fun trying to figure out just what plant to put on it...Thank you for all your help...Judy
