About me
🌿 I've been gardening ever since a child, when I spent time with my father in his vegetable garden. But my fascination with Echeverias started in the 1980's, when my father gave me a pot with five Echeverias, which turned out to be E. imbricata. At first I wasn't much interested in them and planted them in some obscure corner of the garden and completely forgot about them. How great was my surprise when, a couple of months later, I noticed that they had spread and made a beautiful display - I was hooked!

Echeverias thrive on Love and pampering

These Echeveria imbricata have virtually trebled in size! I took from the garden a selection of Aloes, cacti and succulents and transplanted them into a wooden box and I brought it into the house for over-wintering last year. They’ve all thrived so much that I didn't plant them back outside in Spring but kept them in the wooden planter on my patio. It’s amazing what a bit of love and pampering does!

I must say, if I HAD to, I would do quite well in a 10th Floor apartment, I just LOVE container gardening!
