Growing hens and chicks is super easy and fun to do. Here are a few tips to consider when trying your hand at this garden project!
Most potted hens and chick love full on sun. Part time sun is fine but don't place a potted planter in the shade. Get them out there and show them off.
Always provide good drainage. If you select a planter without drain holes, then they should be drilled. Don't over water these babies and don't underwater in the full on heat of summer.
You can buy starters at most garden centers but we can guarantee that you will never have to buy them again. They are easy to divide and they will reproduce like mad.
It's alright to leave them outside during winter but moving them indoors is not a bad idea either, especially in case of extreme cold spells. Be aware of the type of planter that you use that in case of cold the pot won't break.
Potted Hens and Chicks are so much fun to play with. There are a number of varieties to choose from and any container will truly come alive with them spilling out the sides.
