Hi Alain,I really like semps and yours look great. My semps never look that nice during the summer. Of course that could be because I don't give them as much water as I should, but they hang in there and look much better once the weather begins to cool down in the fall. I have plans to plant some of them directly in the ground in the new house landscape. The house faces south and I plan to develop a cactus and succulent border running along the driveway. I anticipate sempervivum playing an important part of this border planting. It looks like you have your plants in nice sized pots, which I think is best for semps. What's the white topdressing? Looks nice.
Hi BobMy Semps. look better in the Summer. They get a bit bedraggled over Winter and need to be tidied up. Weeds and fallen leaves removed. Also new heads need to grow where they flowered the previous year.Your plans sound interesting. I look forward to seeing photos.The top dressing is Cornish grit
