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

Sounds great on the new plants. I bet U wil get it going soon.. U are getting a lot of rain lately.. Rain and cooler temps for a few days starting mon nite..  I placed a inside/outside thermoniter out in the rock bed and it is 128.F right now!! THAT is hot!! It is 95F.  Rocks do hold in heat from the sun so working on a shade deal for it. Got new succulents as they are on sale so it will be full!! Ah work in progress!! Hugs to U girl and get some pics posted when U can!!

I haven't done anything in the yard yet. Went on vacation and 2 weeks later the entire back yard is full with Milk Thistle and other weeds. So we have to take care of that, first. But ever time hubby is home to be with me outside it's raining.

I've gained many plants from my vacation, so I've been potting up those for the past 4 weeks and still have some bulbs to pot up before I'm done.

Love what is going on at your house. Nothing like having to add more Rocks because the plants are doing well. :)

Ah, pic header is back. so the before I started to what I have right now. Bricks in back are 1/2 buryed to hold my tall cactus that are in pots. Tall rocks to hide the pots mostly. Rocks in bed are not staying.. Got it going just need to fine tune it. Going to move wheel barrol and make it bigger.. THEN it will be a rock succlulent bed!!

This does not look like a succulent rock bed. to over grown with others..  

Cleaned all that out and placed it else where.. Not like I want it, but close. I wil redo the rocks some, and make it bigger to make it a nice rocked succulent bed. I hope!! More pics next week or when I get it done. loluck!!

So how is everyones succulent beds doing?? Robin, did U redo yours yet?? I finally got most of the rocks in, just the other day, so I have been procastenating just fine lately.. cough, cough.. I had to have help moving the rocks and all. I have it sort of done but long way to go too.. I looked at it and the rocks stil left, so I am going to do the WHOLE area to a succulent bed! Why not.. No where to load pics here. I wil do so later I guess.

Well, it's been awhile.

Here's an update on my hen and chicks and other sedums and stonecrops.

The winter was rough took out 2/3's of my Hen and Chicks, the Sedum are doing fine, and the winter also wiped out alot of my stonecrops. It's so sad. But now I know what a polar vortex will do to my garden. Also, lost other things like Iris and a bunch of other things :(

It's been an extremely long winter and it's not done yet. I'm so craving gardening.

Love the rocks, and can't wait to see the bird bath when you are done. You definately scored there.

HI Robin!! ARE U surviving the winter OK?? man, what a cold one it has and STILL is for some!! I was given some nice sandstone rocks from the neighbor who sold his house and the new owner wanted them all gone. Welllll, U know a person wanting a real rock succulent garden could NOT pass that up!! So I got them. and more coming I hope, but I hope I talked them out of taking out, the middle trees and rocks that divide the yard.. Anyway.. Here is what I have right now. Changing this all out Friday, I hope my back can deal with it!! loluck!!

The Rocks I wil put together in a nice rock succulent bed! Can't wait! Hope my back holds out! My middle Iland that needs to be bigger! Work in progress! Tree was their so not much to plant their so built it up for grass and other shrubs/roses/Arch going in this spring..  CLICK on picture for a better view and back button back..

The succulent bed for winter, this really helped keep eveything going. Shoved most others in their too, and they are thriving just fine!
