Sempervivums in blue pot


Sempervivums in blue pot (Sempervivum tectorum (Common Houseleek))

I rescued these from my wall baskets. They were struggling as I never remember to water my baskets. But as you know, sempers don't need much water anyway.

I might have to give the seeds in the advert at the bottom of the page a try..

Yup, they look good! I have two packets of seed sitting here from Meanie. A lovely Roscoea and Datura Wrightii. I am going to go and get some compost this lunch time and get them started a.s.a.p. Be nice to have a wander around the GC as well and see what's coming in. Not that I need any more plants! It's hard to resist buying stuff at this time of year when everything is so bare, and you forget how full it all is! :~) x

Lol! I know but it's so tempting with the sales on. I picked up some nice little Alpines in Morrisons last week, just couldn't help it.

I STILL haven't been there to check it out! I'm shopping at Asda these days and they don't have anything at all. It's only a little place. I hate big supermarkets. However, there is a sign up saying we are getting a B&Q in Arbroath soon....yay!

I have them all quite close to me but I like the lay out of the Morrisons......well that's my excuse!

You get used to one and that's it isn't it. I like Asda, I seem to be saving a bit of money there, and it's small as I said. I used to do nearly all my food shop at the local Co-op for that same reason, but it is soooo expensive! Now I just go there for in-betweens. I think the B&Q will go in to the old 'Focus' building which is very close to my new little Asda, so I will be able to pop in there from time to time. :~)

I am so envious Kar, I had some lovely ones in a pot and when tidying the other day they just came away in my hand..... the EVIL WEEVIL had eaten all the roots !
Boo hoo !

That happens with the sempers doesn't it Val? I've had that happen in the past. I had a little row growing in bricks and the kept blowing off because all the roots had been eaten up! grrrrrr!

1 Feb, 2012

 

Yeah grrrr ! :0(((

G&T time Val? ;)) x
