Along the lanes I'd love to wend, near Artist's Mews, on Writer's Bend. Fragrant flowers of every hue would sparkle in the morning dew. I wish I lived in Carver's Valley, Quilter's Creek or Cross Stitch Alley. Just think of all the things I'd make, if I lived by Crafters Lake..........
No, I am not learning a foreign language. I am talking about the very leggy aeonium that I have had growing in a softpot in my garden. Last year Monty Don from gardeners world took drastic action with his aeonium. He cut it in half, leaving a bare stalk and the head of the plant with some stalk attached. Three or four days ago I did exactly that. I left it to dry and have just potted it into a very gritty compost in a proper clay pot. I live in hope that it will root and the remaining stalk will throw out new shoots... I will let you know what happens
This is the aeonium cutting.
Gorgeous clove scented pinks right next to my back door
