    I know this sounds kind of goofy, but i really like hens and chicks. I'm planning on growning these and selling them in containers at farmers markets and festivals. are there any other hens and chick fanaticks out there. i have only 4 or 5 varieties, but would love to trade for more varieties. I went to one site and found over 500 different varieties. I am planning on buying about 25 or so kinds. and possibly trade for different ones someday.

    Very good Randy!! I only have a few and that's coz my grandmother always had them in her garden. I did not realize that there more than one kind of hens&chicks until you posted here. Oh I can't imagine that many different kinds!! I'll search the net and take a look at some.

    Randy,

    Would you be kind enough to share that site with us? I'd really like to see it.

    I also love Sempervivums and Sedums, I have about 25 to 30 different ones. Would be glad to send you some or any one starts. Would also like to trade. Just PM me if you what some. I'm not sure of all the names, dogs keep running off with the name tags. :haha:
