Succulent picture update

semp pic

A few weeks ago I posted about a project I had started, making a picture, planted with sempervivums and other succulents that will, eventually, be hung on the wall. As promised, here is an update to show you how it is coming along. The planting was done in odd moments so you can see that, now it is complete, the first area, at the bottom right, is better established and the plants are already filling in nicely. Now it is complete it is staying in the greenhouse for a couple of months until I can be sure it has all rooted well and then will go outside on a sunny wall. Watch this space for the final installment.

      LOL. I see that I can’t confuse you by other posts! I am glad to say that it is doing ok and although I have a pic of it just showing colour it is not quite out yet. With luck it will be looking good at the weekend so maybe it will be an Easter post. Stay tuned 🙂
