Grumpy Old Man

The little forest

I haven’t been out today, on foot with a camera that is, tho’ I drove down to the garden centre to buy compost, so it’s another home-grown Blip today.

One of the disadvantages of being  a gardener, or a retired gardener, is that one can’t get out of the habit of propagating everything in sight. This succulent, Aeonium holochrysum ‘Blushing Beauty’, was grown from a cutting that I acquired from an undisclosed source. Once it had rooted I chopped the top off and rooted that, and once that had rooted I chopped the top off and rooted that, and once that had rooted - well you see what I mean! Now it’s become a respectable potful I must leave it alone to grow without disturbance.

Quote of the Day:

Margaret Fuller  "... the public must learn how to cherish the nobler and rarer plants, and to plant the aloe, able to wait a hundred years for its bloom, or its garden will contain, presently, nothing but potatoes and pot-herbs."
