Pre-moisten the starter mix and sow 5 - 7 Sedum ground cover seeds per container. The Sedum seeds are exceptionally small, so only press the seed into the moistened soil, and do not cover the seed. Keep the seeds moist but not saturated until they germinate. For outdoor sowing, wait until garden soil temperatures are 21C (70F). Select a site with well-draining soil. If necessary amend soil organic matter. Loosen the top 2 - 4 cm (1 - 2 inches) of soil, remove any weeds, and gently broadcast the Sedum Dragon's Blood seeds over the soil. Lightly press the seeds into the soil, and keep the seed continuously moist until germination.
