clumps of hens and chicks
Picked up two containers 8"x8"x8"deep of these plants.
Our weather here in st paul will be warm yet for another week, maybe a slight frost next week. I am wondering if I will be okay to just plant the clumps in the ground in a raised bed rock/bog garden along with other established plants. I'm thinking of getting a bale or two of straw and covering this area with a mixture of the straw and leaves for the winter.
Do you think they will do ok? Or is a bit too late for them to take hold? I will plant the entire clumps in dug holes lined with fresh compost and cover with several inches of straw.
If they will take, I may go back this morning and buy some more. $2.50 ea seems like a good deal and in the spring I will use them amongst some rock edging or in a container. Wintering in the house is not an option-limited space and windows.
