sedum spreading

sedum spreading (Sedum rupestre)

140920 - it was badly cramped in its pot so as I had a sparea planter, having moved the Buddleia, I moved it there.

That's nice Fran - it will look lovely once it spills over the edge.

thanks, Scottish. I have two or three, this one's the biggest, and will indeed lood good - or better - once it fills out and overflows. I had thought of putting it in a wall trough, what do you think?

Keep it in here Fran - they propagate very easily and next year you can put some more in the trough. See how it gets through winter in there first.
Did you make sure drainage was good. Sedums don't like it too wet in the winter.

I have one or two other smaller sedums, taken from this one couple of yrears ago; they'd be ok for troughs. Though, if they're wall-mouned, or even close to the wall, they'dneed hand-watering cos of the eaves making a rain shadow.

The platers all have pots in them, rather than being planted directly into the planter, and the pots all have proper drainage.

There's a plastic insert which is supposed to be planted into; one cuts slits in the base between the slats at the bottom.

I thought it'd be easier to move plants around if they were in pots in the planter, rather than having to take the insert out; with the weight of wet soil it wouldn't take long for them to split. as it is, i just lift the pot out and in, making sure that the liner is up around the edges.

I could fix it there so it won't slip (and also won't let water betweent he liner and the planter, even though i varnished the wood inside and out ), just not got round to it yet.
