Mehitähtiruukut

Laiskan puutarhurin ruukkuvinkki:
Täytä ruukut edullisilla mehitähdillä ja nauti!
Avomiehen käsialaa on kasvienvalinta ja vierustovereiden.
Minun tehtäväksi jäi vain istutus ja kivien laittaminen..

  1. I love arrangements like this. They are so colorful and modern. It's too bad I have no close garden center or I'd buy myself some today.

  2. Your House Leek gardens are beautiful, and the rocks make them look like Japanese temple gardens - I would love to make some (but will have to keep them away from the hens - they love to peck!!!)

    Do you have traditions about Sempervivum? in England they are planted on roofs to stop lightning striking the house.

  3. Samanlaisia löytyy täältäkin. Täytyypä taas lisäillä istutuksia, nyt kun on punaisiakin "tähtiä" omasta takaa.

    Ja myönnettäköön, että erittäin laiskana olen jättänyt nämä myös ulos talveksi.. tosin minulla noita kasvaa matalissa risukulhoissa joissa ei ole astian hajoamisen vaaraa. Kasvavathan ne ihan pelkän kallion laellakin.

  5. I love sempervivums too and have started to collect them about two years ago (there was also a special post about them in my blog). They also have fascinating little flowers in late summer....and they are, as you wrote, ideal for lazy gardeners!

  6. Hi Q,

    What a great idea your miniature water-wise gardens is - I love it - and think I might do some with the echevaria and cacti we have around and make a feature of them, as you have done. Thanks for the idea.

    It's interesting to see what's going on in your part of the world. Love those hepatica plants and what looks like a tranquil place in your big garden.

    Hi Quu,
    I just came upon your blog and I love it - I'm writing from Chicago, IL in the US. I don't know much about Finland, but we have many of the same perennials in common. Your photos are such an inspiration and I can't wait to look through the archives!
    About the semipervivum - I have planted some Hens and Chicks in the hollow of an old tree stump. They are great, indeed. Can't wait to see what you do next!

  8. Gardenista, plants are growing well at the moment. It seems that they love living in warm clay pots more than in borders ;)

    Magic, in country side I have seen few small cottages/playhouses roof full with House Leeks, but not much. I think it's now IN at the moment.

    Risulintu, täytyy varmaan nostaa nuo penkin päälle talveksi pois purkeista, kun ei taida nuo saviruukut kestää pakkasta. =/ No mutta ensi vuonna saa tehdä uudet istutelmat!

    Heidi, mäkin tykkään! Nyt on marketeissa ollut pitkästä aikaa paljon valikoimaakin niin voi ihastua uudestaan ja uudestaan.

    Barbara, I shall find your post about House Leeks. :) Flowers are sometimes bigger than plant itself :D

    Ladyluz, Finnish gardeners grow often many weeds around the world :) Few years ago I had Cacti pots also, but they lived in the greenhouse.

    Laura, Welcome! :)I grow also small plants in hollows of an old tree stumps. And plants find their way in hollows by itself too, like Lamiums. What would you like to know about Finland? :)
