Buy Sempervivum collection house leeks collection: Great for alpine beds and stone walls

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil with added grit
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    These decorative evergreen groundcovering plants can be used to great effect in troughs, alpine beds, stone walls and even to soften the gaps between paving slabs. In this collection, you will receive 6 different un-named types. They are all quite different, but they all have rosettes of succulent leaves and clusters of star-shaped summer flowers. After each rosette has produced flowers it will die off, but it is soon replaced with a new lateral rosette that will form on a runner. Please note that the ceramic pot shown in some of the images is not included. They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Garden care: Cut back spreading species after flowering. Water moderately when actively growing and avoid winter wet.

No labels and one was mouldy

Unfortunately the box must have tipped over during its travels, as one of the pots was not in the packing and was upside down, the plant was quite broken and there was quite a lot of mould over the plant. It is slowly recovering now. Sadly nothing was labelled and there are no names on the web site, so I know I have purchased sedums but no more than that. I realise I can research them, but it wold have been good to have a label. Instructions very generic and not much use. The other 5 plants are great, vigorous, lovely and doing well, and just what I wanted.They arrived in good time.

Sempervivum excellence

When they arrived they were an excellent size and very good value. I planted them in a large urn in the centre of a round herbaceous/perennial bed - they grew on very well. I took them up in the autumn and put them into troughs in a cold frame for the winter - chiefly to protect them from being too wet. They are looking very well there.

Really nice selection of sempervivums for summer containers. The plants were all a good size, healthy and an interesting mix. Good value for their quality and size.

Which sized alpine trough would you recommend for the collection please, and what sort of compost should be used?
