TRANSPLANTING HENS AND CHICKS
A good friend of mine gifted me with a bunch of hens and chickens from her garden back in August. I was thrilled because I wanted to put them in my perennial garden out back.
I knew that it would not be wise to plant them now with the winter season coming, so I had to figure out what type of vessel to put them in to keep them inside until next spring. I pulled out two tray like pieces. I really wanted to use the silver plated tray, but then realized that it would be difficult to keep it polished until then. I turned toward the cut glass vegetable tray and decided that this would be better. This is one of those pieces that I picked up at an estate sale for next to nothing ages ago.
I have learned something about watering succulents since I have received them. I saw on Pinterest that it is wiser to spritz them every day rather than watering them and drowning them. It seems to be working.
I don't know how fast they will grow and expand so I will just keep on eye and them and see what happens before next spring.
They do add a bit of greenery in the house in the cold winters. Stay tuned for next spring to see how the plants do.
