Holiday over...


An empty pot to fill , after having  had quite a job removing all the  summer holiday Succulents . It doesn't look that thrilling at the moment: A little Corokia that I dug up, it wasn't growing well in the ground anyway, When I was digging it out I could feel something very solid underneath it, no wonder it wasn't growing!. The silvery growth in front is Ozothamnus 'County park silver' which I've had in a small pot for years, forming a nice sized mat. In the ground it tends to disappear in the gravel. The two tiny feathery things are: cuttings of Chamaecyparis thyroids 'Heather bun' and Hebe 'karogold Eek' . 

And what about the evicted ? This trio have found a home in a midcentury pot I picked up this summer.  Small enough to get in doors .  The others are having to squeeze back into any spare pots I could I could find and I mean squeeze , they have really grown.

  1. Is that Kalanchloe bhariensis 'Fang'? It looks so good. I had to toss mine.

  2. So sad to see the succulent summer holiday end but I love the midcentury pot that they'll be wintering in. Feels a bit like a favorite old sweater wrapped around them.

  4. Lovely new (old) pot, with lovelier plants in it. I'm mourning the end of summer. Any luck on dog sitters for tomorrow? I'm still planning to drive up to Alison's and would be happy to take you.
