Nice selection there Dave only another four thousand four hundred left to collect Rolling on the floor laughing Hope you've your compost and labels organised and remember the greatest enemy of semps is wet boggy soil . This time last year I had about six or seven semps now I'm up to about eighty or so I tip my hat to you.

Hello everyone. I've been super busy with my plants lately. Pruning indoor ones before they start hibernating for winter!
I will go take pictures of my Semps tomorrow morning for you all Smiling

Hi Dave , I've only bought semps from Fernwood.co.uk and Sempervivum.de a German site . Delivery only takes a few days whether by courier or post office . The best part of buying semps online is they keep for weeks and will spring back to life as soon as planted .

Hi Pia good to see you again ,can't wait to see your updates .

Pia, you say you are pruning your indoor plants. I'm wondering if you grow any semps indoors?

No I haven't had much luck with Semps indoors they go very leggy for me so I leave them outside. Sad
