Hello and welcome to this weeks Six on Saturday.
Thank you for all your kind comments this week. Jam slowly feel better and have managed on average 2 hours per day in the garden. I have not been doing anything strenuous and ace been mostly potting and propagating succulents.
Last week we had our first significant rain for a while and the garden has been given a real boost by this. Some plants are starting to become real thugs and I think I am going to do some thinning in the autumn.
Here is my six on Saturday which this week is a succulent special. Purely because it was easier to take photo’s at the potting bench.
1. Echeveria Black Prince
I lost a lot of succulents last year due to the fact I due to the illness I didn’t have time to put some. Under colour. I thought I had lost 2 Black Princes so imagine my delight when I found this baby hiding away in one of my pots. I have re planted this and it is taking pride of place on my table. It must have come from a discarded leaf which obviously has propagated in the Spring.
2. Sempervivum Rosie
One of my favourite Semps this year. Just a perfect looking specimen.
3. Sempervivum Virgil
Another favourite of mine this year. I really like the colouring of this.
4. Graptoveria Alpengrow
I lost most of my adult plants of Graptoveria Alpenglow but luckily I managed to save a tray of rooted leaves. This is one of the stand out plants. It has very striking colours this year.
5. Sedum Rubrotinctum
I lost all my Sedum Rubrotinctum last year and found some nice healthy plants on Ebay. So theses were this was the first plant I bought this year. I managed to spot it into 15 different mini plants and all doing well. I have found some more healthy plants on Ebay and I have ordered these to arrive next week.
6. Sempervivum Autumn Fire
This plant has small but perfectly formed rosettes. The tips are red and the colour intensifies to a reddy brown the more sun it gets.
That’s my six for this week. I am sorry if I didn’t reply to any comments you left last week bit I will make a point of replying to those today.
Lastly only one more thing to say. COME ON RNGLAND!!!!
Thanks for reading.
