Getting more plants is a good thing, right? So this morning I went to a very well done, 3 hour class given by the local extension office on the topic of plant propagation (a.k.a. - more plants). Without trying to sound vain or conceited, I have to say that almost all of it was a review for me. But I enjoyed it anyway.
And there were goodies. The instructor brought in different plants for us to practice what we had discussed. I came home with just a few. I have thought about growing Lemon Balm, but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend money on something that would become horribly invasive. However, I did take a cutting of her Lemon Balm to give it a try - in a container.
Only yesterday I had looked at this same variety of Hen and Chicks (with the extra red in it) and thought it would be cute to have, but I didn't want it bad enough to buy it. Today, I got to pull a little plant away from its clump to start its own colony. How cool is that!
Have a beautiful day!
It's been a glamorous week in the garden
