Do you know why in my garden the slugs and snails leave alone the 'ordinary' sedum spectabile, but chew away at the one with the variegated leaves ?

Errrrrrrrrrrrr - no!

Oh, Wagger.
I'm disappointed :o(
I thought you knew everything ! Lol. :o)

Picture a tongue sticking out! Perhaps if I send you my slugs you can give them a trial and see if they prefer variagated.

Now, Wagger...
...a better suggestion would surely be if you'd asked me to send you some of my variegated Sedum Spectabile..... :o)

Well, if you'd like me to trial it for you, I wouldn't say no.

It is called 'Frosty Morn' and is variegated in that the leaf edges are whitish.
We could do a deal a bit later on when I'm less busy with fencing, if you don't already have that sedum.....

I'd swap it for some of your Sedum Spurium Coccineum ...
you must have lots of that because you put the photo on GoY twice...Lol.

P.S. What colour flower on Autumn Joy, above ?

Well, that would be a deal then - I've only the one pot (did I?) but I've already pegged a couple of pieces down to propagate.
PPS . The common pink.

Okay ~ I'll let you know when I'm less busy ~
i.e. when fencing sorted out...... :o(

I'll pot up a bit of Autumn Joy to let it settle.

So, if you've seen my reply under my recent Aubrieta photo...
am I right that I send you Frosty Morn and some Aubrieta, to see if it might grow in your heavy soil..... with some stones added for drainage ? I won't send the stones ~ you add those when you plant it. Lol...

...and you'll send me Autumn Joy and S. Spurium Coccineum ?

By the time I'm ready to send mine, I'll probably find a couple more rockery plants I can put in the package.... I'll check with you first, that you don't have them already. :o)

... Ooooh ~ this is getting exciting... Lol

Decided to put this photo on my favourites for future reference...

Sounds good to me, TT. Off to check the seeds in the propagator now, I'm sure the capilliary matting will be dry with the heat on. Back this evening - have a good day.
