Some growth on the sempervivums, and a lot of weeds!
27 August – Bank Holiday Saturday
As this bed is in the shade until mid-afternoon (not perhaps ideal for sedums and sempervivums), it is the ideal spot to carry out some much needed weeding while the back of the house bakes in the sun.
It was difficult to see the house-leeks in between all the weeds
Weed-free (for now), I dressed the bed with horticultural grit, then added decorative grit on top.
Much improved, and room for more, but unless I order from the internet, I am restricted to what is available in my local garden centre – if there’s anything left after the weekend!
I did manage to grow this from a piece that ‘dropped off’ a plant at the garden centre
And gave this pot a tidy up to remove all the dead matter after the larger house-leeks flowered and died.
So I’ve plenty to add to the bed to bulk it out a bit.
