Mother in Law's Tongue

Posted: 03/05/2013 at 20:56

Hi Tim, mothers in law's tongue is part of the succulent family. It's a bit cold for them be them outside, they are indoor plants really, although they do like being outside in the summer. I would say that they do best in a sunny window sill, they don't like be overwatered in the winter. Is the soil really wet?

Climber for a pot?

Hello everyone, the sunshine is still shining here, hoping it's going to continue into the weekend.

Spotted an other Echininciea through today, very pleased as grew them from seed last year. It will match the other 2, I like odd numbers in the garden.

GG, what have you got growing? I think I can see some sweetpeas.....but can't really see the rest.

I would say the same, a lot of the plants that you buy from supermarkets etc tend to be pot bound and not watered enough. It is a hardy plant so you could plant it straight out. I'd pot it on, give it a good drink and then plant it out when it's recovered

Hi Arose, yes I would start to move them out, they are only little so would watch out for the weather

Can anyone identify this plant?

Posted: 01/05/2013 at 21:56

From what I can see, looks like you have a few plants in there. The middle and biggest one I think a rose.
