Inside Hens & Chicks 10 Replies

Since I live in the Midwest (think cold and snow), will Hens and Chicks survive indoors in a room with lots of windows?  I usually bring the pot into the garage over the winter and take it back…Continue

Birdie, LOVE your windowsill planter!

Hi Robin~ glad you started this group, yay! There are a lot of us sedum lovers out here to get your info from.  Yes, they're prolific growers, but the great thing is they pull out easily since they don't have a deep root system.  I'm always yanking one or another of them and tossing somewhere else to grow.

They do prefer sun but will tolerate shade.  They won't usually bloom in the shade, tho.

That is cool, keeping summertime with you all year. I received some starts last year from friends here on G-S I rushed to get them potted and then put into the ground in my winter holding area in the garden. I can't wait until spring to see if they survived.

No I don't think so but my daughter wanted something she could have on her desk at work so I planted her a small bowl.  Then it kinda grew from there.  Have about 5 mini gardens in bowls now.  LOL

Another good site for nice plants is "Simply Succulents"  just google them.  They have some great ideas on there too!

Robin that is a verigated sedum  This is my first attempt at trying to keep them inside during the winter.  Some faired better than others.

Thank you Garden Girl. I will check it out!

Comment by Garden Girl on March 5, 2012 at 2:21pm

Mary, if you are looking for something for a show, check out North Hills Nursery

I ordered a bunch of Semps. from there a number of years ago, and assuming the quality is still the same, they are awesome!  Generous and gorgeous plants.  It is also a great site to learn from.

Thanks, Robin. Don't know what I'll do for the show this year! But, this was the 1st time in this catagory I actually got a ribbon! We don't have any small pots of succulents in yet, but I think I'll check out HD down the road. They usualy have them.
