Succulent Dish

Mother's Day 2005

Dish garden naturally lend themselves to succulents.  They thrive in the dry conditions.

Full sun and little watering will keep this pot beautiful.

Low Maintenance

All of these plants thrive with little care also, and are very drought tolerant.

Frosty Morn Sedum and Lime Thyme great combo

another low maintenance dish 4-2005

This dish has a small corm from a purple shamrock, and the frosty morn sedum is in it's rooting stage.  I plan on the shamrock and the sedum being left for 2006.  That will make this an almost no care dish.

Scree Garden

Scree deposits are aggregations of small, loose rock debris, found at the base of steep inclines or cliffs. They are unique growing mediums for plants, and the conditions in which these plants grow may in many ways be quite limiting. Besides the weather itself, alpine plants rely on specific nutrients available in their specialized soils, where rocks are continually being weathered and broken down through chemical and physical changes. Alpine plants also rely on the weather and climate itself, as continual freezing and thawing of the soil creates "frost heaves", areas of disturbed soil suitable for new plant growth. This soil movement is also responsible for aeration. The length of growing season also plays a critical role for alpine plants. With a short growing season, and a nutrient deficiency in the young mountain soil, many alpine plants take on a stunted appearance. Their low profile also helps to limit damage caused by wind
