These were also marketed as GW terrain.

I need a lot of the hedges for a new terrain set up. Does anyone know who sells them in the USA or does anyone have some of the larger ones they would sale

Thanks,

Matthew

Try PECO:

I have a lot of them.
Don't know who sells in the rebel colonies though.

Thanks. I did try them first, but the seem to be a distributor for other stores to buy from. No prices listed.

Legends In Time sells K&M trees, not sure if they stock the hedges?

Thanks crispy. That list I already checked out. They are distributors as well. I'll check out legends in time.

PECO do sell direct as well, which is where I got them online. ISTR there was some difficulty so simply phoned them. But as Crispy has pointed out it might be easier to buy via a distributor.

I read this and was thinking how nice it was that I could run up to PETCO and get some cat food and miniature hedges.

You can easily make your own using Gatorfoam as a base or MDF, then cut coconut lower basket liner fro the hedge. Pluck it apart and glue flocking on it. Add some flowers and longer grass to the base.

Those turned out really good. I'll give it a try. Thanks

I made these from a floor cleaning pad. The round kind that fits on the cleaning machine.I'm happy with them.

Very nice nevinsrip!

Those did turn out nice nevinsrip.

I looked up the type of scrubbing pad you mentioned. Did you take it apart in bits? Kind of like tuffs. Or did you cut straight rows out of the ring? In the side shots they look like clumps.

Thanks,

Matthew

I used 2 pair of pliers to rip it apart.
