They are planted in the ground outside the edge of the garden, a fist apart. That edge is a tin edge from bunnies just to keep moisture and soil up to them, till they take off. Our son has been known to go a bit hard at the edges with a whipper snipper so they needed some protection. I hope they send down long roots and multiply, they are in a little shade but still look OK. Thanks again for offering the slips at a good price, Elaine. We will eventually plant a whole row around the edge of garden, just waiting to buy more.
Are the slips growing in a pot? Looks like a shallow trough ... or is that just an edge to build up the soil level?
Recently Elaine, you offered up some vetiver slips for sale and I purchased some from you at a good price and we have planted them just outside our orchard area up the back yard. They are growing on a slope where the water runs downhill during a downpour. The intention is to send it down to the roots of the tree, so we will see what happens when the rains come.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion. It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
