Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

Thanks @rosiebug @ShelleySnyder @midnightgardener - I have another sedum that has collapsed from the middle - also all over the place!

@valjones-hughes It's as though mine's top heavy. I cut it back after flowering last year. It flowered fine that year too. Flowering is good now but all the heads are on the ground. It just doesn't look right. Can they be seperated I wonder?#advice 😊😊

I been thinking about my other one Christine @midnightgardener , it’s a different variety with beautiful purple foliage but the stems are all splayed and the flowerheads on the ground like yours. I’ve been thinking about how it could best be supported next year. I’m going to do some research and see what I can find out. I’ll keep you posted.

@midnightgardener maybe adding sand to the soil or cutting back the stems in spring is the answer! https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/sedum/sedums-top-heavy.htm

@valjones-hughes Thank you Val. I could try tying something round it. Not sure what though. It looks pretty heavy. I'll think of something 😊😊
