My sedums have happily resided on my patio for the last two years. However this year I have noticed that there are little floret type flowers which have appeared on last years stems and also at the bottom of the pot. When I touch them they come off readily and have their own root system so I am assuming my plants have self propagated this year? My question is that should I remove these little spores now and cut down the original plants dead stems and what is the best way to bring on these little babies? Look forward to any advice.
Kind regards

You cut off the spent flower stems, the leaves at the base are the main plant, they might have seeded themselves. Sedums are not very deep rooted, I would wait till March and carefully uproot the babies and put them in a sunny spot.

Yup, they happily propagate and before long you will be selling them! I cut down my sedums in early spring before this happens.
