Transplanting Sedum

Posted: 02/06/2014 at 09:40

Oh my goodness so confusing - I read yesterday on the internet that cuttings should be popped in water, and I bit I broke off is now in a jar - should I just pop it in a pot?

Obelixx I saw this thread when you first posted it but didn't follow the links as I watched all the BBC coverage on the iplayer and was all Chelsea'd out!!  Just been having a look today and I think they should employ you next year, I saw a lot more of the gardens than I did on the tv.  Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, they're lovely photos and much more "Chelsea" than the BBC coverage.

Me too.  I love looking at everyone's gardens, they're so inspiring (and better than Chelsea dare I say )

Transplanting Sedum

Posted: 02/06/2014 at 08:09

Wow fantastic advice, thanks!  I will move it today, I won't try to divide it but if bits break off then so be it.  Dove, it's not monstrous, I only bought it last year, although it's about twice the size now, it's just it's in a narrow strip of a bed down the side of the path at the front.  I planted it there originally because it has full sun and the soil is a bit stony and thin, ideal conditions I thought.  But I found the pink flowers jarring last autumn given that I've got mostly yellow and orange down that side.  Hence the move.

Thanks again everyone, perhaps some cake to show my appreciation...

Hi all

Yesterday I decided that I wanted to move my Sedum ( I think it's Autumn Joy) from the front garden as it's too large for the space and also it's the wrong colour.  I have read that sedums are pretty tough and won't mind too much, can anyone confirm this?  Also can I divide it now to make new sedums?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Morning all!

Another sunny morning, thank goodness!

Been reading what everyone did yesterday, my goodness I feel so inadequate. I only did a bit of weeding and planted out a couple of delphiniums and a lavender.  The rest of the time I was just pottering around. Oh and I potted up some more self-sown verbena bonariensis seedlings, I now have about 65, and there's still more in the garden.  I'm going to try and sell them off as I need to raise funds for my greenhouse.  But that's for a bit later on in the summer when they've grown a bit.

Anyway I'll try and be a bit more industrious today still got most of the plants I bought on Saturday to plant out or pot up and lots of ivy, nettles, brambles, grass and other weeds to clear at the top of my garden.  Plus washing and cooking.

Have a good day everyone!

Fairygirl you ARE good.  It is a Philadelphus, and there's a thyme at the front.  if the picture is too blurred I'll take a close up of the shrubs.  In the meantime, another prize for you:

There are some shrubs and a herb not mentioned.  More cake for the winners!

You would except it's not penstemon it's a Salvia gregii, and not gerbera but osteo.  But I think a cupcake is in order!
