Six on Saturday 7th December 2019

Hello and welcome to this weeks six on Saturday.

This weeks Six is going to be one of the fastest because I am suffering from a pretty nasty ear infection. I have managed to pop out and get six photo’s.

Here is my six

1. Sedum Palmeri

Flower buds are starting to form on my Sedum Palmeri Ready for the spring. Soon there should be candelabras of yellow flower appearing celebrating the start of spring.

2. Red spot on my Heuchera’s

Most of my light coloured Heucheras have been suffering from red spot since the middle of summer. I will have to read up about if these can be treated but have a sneaky feeling these will have to be disposed of. My dark Heucheras seem to be ok so that is good news.

3. Hebe Buchananii

This slow low going Hebe is a dwarf plant which is a slow grower and hugs the ground. It is filling in well and hopefully next year it will produce small white flowers.

4. Saxifraga Fotunei

I bought five Saxifraga Fortunei last year and only 2 seem to have survived. A native of damp Chinese forests these like dull damp conditions and they grow and flower between autumn Christmas so give some vibrant green colour in autumn even though these plants are small.

5. Primula Kushum Khrisna

This drawf Primula should start to flower early spring. As you can see the plant is starting to produce shoots and by the looks of how many shoots there is the plant should look spectacular in the spring.

6. Cowslip

Always nice to see a Cowslip flower at anytime of the year but particularly on a cold wet December day.

That is my six.

If you want to write one it is not that difficult. As always to find out how six on Saturday works please follow the following link The Propagator. The don of Six on Saturday.

Until next week goodbye.

    Ear infections are so painful, I hope it improves quickly. A nice six, try cutting those spotty leaves off, the plant might be OK with new growth.


    1. Yes I shall read up on them.

    Sounds like you’re on the road, so hopefully will’ve kicked that ear infection to the curb very soon. Loved seeing the cowslip & that hebe is gorgeous. Hopefully the heuchera can be saved. They’re such great plants.

    I am sorry I missed this. By now, you are likely doing well with the infection. It might be a while before I catch up with last Saturday.
    The spots on the heuchera loo sort of like rust. You probably identified it by now. Ours look like that late, but only after dampened a bit. Except for removing all the foliage by the end of winter, I do nothing about it. (rust overwinters in the old foliage from the previous year.) It might be more of a problem in your region because of the humidity.
