Sedum Seed Success

 

P1000830

It’s true, that upon arrival of my beloved greenhouse, I went a bit mad.
I decided that I would grow everything I liked…all at once!
Technically I needed a greenhouse the size of Wembley Stadium. I forgot mine was only 6’x10’….but in all the excitement I didn’t care.

One of my many random purchases were ‘mixed’ Stonecrop & ‘Ruben’s Lizard’ Sedum seeds from Seedaholic. (see previous post)

They are so easy to grow & amazing to follow too.
Seeds were placed on the top of everyday seed compost, VERY lightly covered with vermiculite & watered / misted occasionally.
That’s it….really simple.

EVERY seed germinated but I did wonder how on earth such spindly seedlings could turn into chunky sedums.

Here they are now…from a speck of dust to fabulously chunky stems & foliage in 5” pots in just 3 months.

Wow! What a fine job you and your lovely greenhouse have done! Hmmm, could a Tidy Garden plant nursery be in your future? I see a new business on the horizon. All the best! :-)

They're awesome! I thought the seedlings would be a bit beefier to create such thick plants. I love how funky sedum are. :o)
