The plants featured above include :
Echeveria ‘Topsy Turvy’, whose leaves look as if they are positioned upside-down. Looking spectacular with its soft green curled leaves, it has produced a couple of new plants to the side of the pot.
A pretty pink Kalanchoe – just bursting into bloom – is spreading out in a small rock garden.
An Agave, whose leaves are spotted with marks from the tiny hailstones which fell a few days ago.
Marigolds are great plants for brightening up any garden. Easy to grow, they will continue to flower for months. Deadhead frequently to ensure continuous blooming, collect and dry the spent flowers and you can sow fresh seeds next year.
This ornamental bird cage, too small to house birds, is ideal for planting some succulents.
Ideal for containers, baskets and gardens, our white Euphorbia always seems to be in flower.
Easy to propagate by carefully removing a rooted section and replanting, these pretty little plants will soon fill a bare space in the garden.
Echeveria form into rosettes which, when planted, multiply to form a nice display. They are a thick-leaved low growing succulent and grow well in full sun and need little water. This pink Kalanchoe has pretty double flowers and nice shiny dark green leaves.
Euphorbia – Medusa’s head
Chalk sticks and Crassula Ovata – blue bird
Having a Jade plant near your front door is supposed to bring money into your house! Our Jade plant always looks welcoming on our front verandah. These brilliant succulents, Euphorbia – Medusa’s head, Chalk Sticks and Crassula Ovata – blue bird, propagated by my sister are very decorative and need little water.
This exotic Gollum Jade, as well as many other succulents in my garden, were grown by my sister. Fingers seem to sprout and point from this shiny lime green succulent.
Kalanchoe add a bright and pretty touch with their red flowers and shiny scalloped leaves. The vintage water kettle makes a good container and the bronze pagoda blends into the scene.
