Finally!…I am “neck deep” in my favorite project…re-potting more Alpines! Plan to finish up by August 15th! Have had great success starting up some new varieties from seeds as well as from cuttings. Also managed to hunt down some rare extras from my main beds to share.
Also…ALL of my “Hens and Chick” collection are now in larger pots. Seems there are over 170 varieties so far. (I think I need a few more…L0L!) Can’t carry a large amount of each, but will certainly have a few to spare. The added love and attention (some chilly weather…) is really bringing out their great color. Will be posting some new photos as these always speak “a thousands words”.
Oh and before I forget…for all those ANT haters out there, another gardener has shared a wonderful tip with me. He has had great success with using COFFEE GROUNDS on ant hills. Seems that when they see/smell the brown stuff…they pack up their bags and leave town! AND it is natural…with no toxic residue!
Till we meet again,
p.s. Had a great plant sale this fall (August 15 till Sept.15…) Thank you to all who came out!
