Ice Plants/Sedum

Postby DingleDel » Sun Jun 07, 2015 9:59 am

One clump of mine has gone absolutely mad, I have never divided them, is it too late in the year to do this please?

I wouldn't think so. I have moved these at all times of year and they have grown OK.

the only do you mean little low growing ones are the taller ones? Low ones just seem to break off easily and always have a bit of a root. Kath sent me some on the post once and they were perfect - so tough old things :)

I may well give it a try then, thank you.

It one similar to these Carolyn, I seem to have a few varieties, some have pink flowers and others are a darker burgundy like colour.

I would say that you will struggle to split them up without breaking a lots of them - the stems seem to break easily, if you look closely you will probably find some little seedling underneath and I would have a go at digging them out and popping them in a pot for them to establish themselves for a few weeks.

any that you break you can use them to take cuttings, it is right time to do that :)

I've never really done much in the way of cuttings, always been short of time in the past.

I may need to do a bit of reading up as I have a few plants in the garden I would like to propagate.

Lavender, rosemary, hydrangea, hebe, japonica-quince I believe.......I have even been considering where I could fit in one of those little coldframes! :roll:

They are easy, and you don't need a cold frame. I just put them in a shady part of the garden, not too dark. Keep them covered. I find plastic bottles good for covering, just cut off bottoms or tops. Or any see through container eg meat from supermarket. Lmk if you want any tips
