There are two main ways of propagation sempervivum vegetative (daughter plants) and generative (by seeds). I tried two of these ways and want to share my experience with you and give you some tips.
In nature, many plants can be dangerous for humans and various animals. Some of these plants are grown in the garden as ornamental plants. There are even such people who grow poisonous plants indoors. Today we find out if Hens & Chicks are poisonous.
As you may already know, sempervivum is a drought-resistant plant, it can accumulate water in the leaves and does not require frequent watering. These guidelines are full of the Internet, but this is not entirely true. Hens and Chicks can do without water for a long time, but it will not grow vigorously in drought.
Many years ago, I started growing sempervivum, during which time I had a lot of experience on how to do it better. Today we’ll talk about how much sunlight Hens and Chicks needs, whether this plant can tolerate shade, and we’ll discuss a few other issues.
Here is the time to discuss wintering sempervivum. Some gardeners doubt that this gentle succulent can withstand severe frost since its “brothers” of haworthia and echeveria are unable to withstand the cold.
When I first saw the pines, I was fascinated by their long needles, beautiful bark texture, and sturdy trunk. Later, I started growing decorative pines in my garden. It seemed that due to their strength and energy, they could not be damaged.
Shade-loving plants are convenient because they can be planted under trees or in places where other plants cannot survive. But this does not always mean that they have to grow only in shade.
Coral Bells are some of the most desirable plants in my garden. They impress me with colors and leaves shape. Because heucheras are shade-loving plants, I was interested in their size. It was necessary to find out under which plants they can be planted.
Spring is coming, and the plants are gradually coming to life. Now is the time to start pruning plants. I know that many of you have a problem with blue spruce trees. These vigorous plants quickly occupy a large area in your yard.
