This is the biggest group of new purchases and possibly for me the most interesting.
My sister heard I was making a succulent container and mentioned she wanted one too. She is not a plant person, she basically knows one succulent, “Hens & Chicks,” and that’s what she asked for.
“Well I like Hens & Chicks” I think to myself. I’ll just find myself several different types that I really like and divide off some “Chicks” to keep.
So at the end of the day I get a fantastic excuse to buy myself several different interesting Sempervivum and everyone is happy.
But wait! There’s more!
Then we got an order from one of our more specialist perennial growers and what’s that? Jovibabra? Unexpected but so awesome. Only two different types but I’d already picked up both before I noticed they were not actually just really interesting Sempervivum cvv..
We have some clay Strawberry Pots for only $10 (with an opening at the top that should fit a gallon pot and 6 openings around each more than able to hold a 4″ pot) and I’ll grab one for these for my sister (The big one at the top, the others + ‘Oddity’ around the sides when I can find it). I’ll post a picture when I have it done. Maybe I’ll get two of these containers and do the exact same mix up for myself.
