I would Google search for these particular seeds.

You can also check with Ebay, they can be a good source for seeds and plants.

Dymondia Watering

Four weeks ago, I put in an approx 10×12 section of dymondia to replace part of my front lawn. I watered it (broadcast sprinklers) for 2 minutes, 3 times per day, every day for 3 weeks, then cut back to twice per day. I understand from your dymondia article that it takes 6 months to get it established. How long should I stay on this schedule? What watering schedule do you recommend I use for the next 5 months?

Now that the plants have been in for a month, switch to watering less frequently while make sure the soil is moistened more deeply. This will make sure the plants' roots are encouraged to grow deeper into the soil. After watering, simply push your finger into the soil to make sure the soil is moistened several inches down. You can reduce watering to every other day, then once a week. You can reduce the water the plants get if it rains, and increase it if they start looking wilted. See this article for more:

I use a weed whacker to trim my dymondia, but it is very messy. Is there an easier way?

ANSWERS

Many people don't need to trim their dymondia at all. If yours grows too tall, a lawnmower would probably work more evenly than a weed whacker.

Transplanting Dymondia

How do I divide overcrowded dymondia?

ANSWERS
BushDoctor
Certified GKH Gardening Expert

This plant will benefit, substantially, from dividing when it gets over-crowded. What you will want to do is dig up as much as possible, shaking the dirt out. Split them up by pulling them apart from one another. Plant half back in to the original area and the other half wherever else you want them. Make sure to water-in everywhere you plant to set the roots back in the soil properly.

Will this plant do as well in part shade?

ANSWERS

As long as it is just partial shade, it should be fine. They really prefer full sun. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lawn-substitutes/dymondia/dymondia-as-grass-substitute.htm
