Hello and welcone to this weeks SOS.
The winter solstice has come and gone and the days are getting longer….slowly. Hopefully Spring will be just around the corner and in the next few months the garden will spring into life.
Christmas prepartions are going well so I will spend some time in the garden this morning.
Here is my SOS.
1. Aqualegia Salmon Rose seedlings.
The perennials I planted in September seem to be going well. I was not a big seed grower but the Propagrator got me hooked. I planted 4 different packets of seeds and all are doing well.
2. Aeonium Emerald Flame
A small low growing hybrid Aeonium this has taking on some wonderful reddy brown colour on it’s tips. This is in my mini gravel garden. Hopefully it will produce some chicks next year.
3. Geum Cuttings doing well
I butchered my Geum Lady Strathden in the summer whem I tried to split it in half. I stuck some stalks in the fround and all of them are coming on really well. Will put them on pots soon and give some to my sister.
4. Sedum Rubritincoum
A perrenial favourite also known as the Jelly Bean plant. As the weather is milder I have put most of my succulents outside to get some direct sunlight. Whilst succulents do well in the house it is always good for them to be outside reaping the benefits of the sun.
5. Choisya Ternata
A £2 special from Morrisons in early autumn this shrub is thriving in the wet dam weather. What’s not to like….bargain!
6. Sedum Lineare Silverstar
Grown from a couple of cuttings this is a vibrant plant with really nice foliage. In the foreground is Cremosedum Crocodile which as you can see has dark green leaves that turn brown and leathery. This is one of my favourites.
That is my SOS and will likely be my last one this year.
I would like to wish everybody Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and I hope Garden Santa is kind to you.
