Another sedum, I think!

It seems like weeks since I had my usual Friday, where I did some work in the garden after swimming and my Knit and Natter group. So, it was almost a relief to have some normality today.

Last weekend, my dad had given me a number of plants, including two succulents. I’m not sure if the one I planted under the yukka in the front garden is a sedum but it does look like one.

This spot is one of the driest in either of my gardens but I was pleased to see that the soil did have some moisture.

In general, the soil seems to be better in the front garden than the back, which I put down to it not having being dug since at least before the house was built in 1998. On the other hand, being next to the drive and the road, the plants might contain too many toxins to be readily eaten.

I am curious to try sedums one day, though. They might not all be edible but the sempervivum, which are starting to multiple in the back garden, are.

Unfortunately, the Plants for a Future website appears to be down, so I can’t post a link. I’m a little alarmed that the site is not available – it has been having funding issues, so I hope it will be alright!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
