Hens and Chickens help

I have had these under this step for over 15 years. They are looking pretty sad this year. Should I separate them and add new soil there. All these years and I have just let them be. Any advice would be appreciated. I hope this link works~Carole Apr 17 4 14 29 PM.jpg Apr 17 4 13 02 PM.jpg

How much water are their roots actually getting under there?
Just because they don't need much water doesn't mean they don't need any.

RE: Hens and Chickens help

I would dig them up and replant the ones that look good.
It would take a year for them to look natural, with mature and young coming on. That they have grown there for so long means it must be a good spot.

RE: Hens and Chickens help

Thanks for the help. I have replanted the good ones and they are doing pretty good. I'm on Cape Cod and they love this hot spot under the steps. Again thanks.
