The plants that live under the most difficult circumstances often have the most amazing blooms 💪this one took -2,7°C last winter and does 35°C in summer without complaining.
Sedum treleasei is one of the most beautiful in my humble opinion. What surprises me is that in terms of growth rate, they do best in filtered sunlight. When they receive strong and full sun the growth tends to stagger, and the leaf color becomes yellowish but paler. ( wich can be a good thing if that's what you like.) It's a matter of balance, to much sunlight= less growth and different leaf color, to little sunlight = leggy and weak plant. Btw, in the picture they've just been watered, which dries up quickly afterwards!

Propagating from leafcuttings takes a long time but is rewarding in the end 💚 one year old.
Basil 'Dark opal' and 'Genovese' are going well in my home made potting soil!
I planted these last year to eat, but I like the flowers too much. Tragopogon porrifolius or Salsify.
Last fall I planted a patch of Jerusalem artichoke, all around them grow wild flowers now which I love, so I just leave them. The Jerusalems probably don't bother anyway. I wonder what the patch will look like when in bloom later on in the season!
My Artichoke is going beserk this year! Huge! 4 bloom stalks at least! 😃 it must have loved the dry summer of 2018 and the gentle winter. Planting more of those for sure ✌🌳
New one for the collection! Graptopetalum bellum.
I got this one on facebook and it had to come all the way from Belgium! Haworthia cooperi 'Truncata'
When I put together pots like this one I hope they will last for years, I think plants look the best when they are aged while having received the best care. Vintage cactuspot with E. Pearl von nurnberg and pink moonstones.
The plant room overwintering palace :p if you see an empty spot, let me now. I need it. In this picture: Sedum, Adenium, Echeveria species, Grassulas, Haworthia, x Sedeveria, Kalanchoe, Aeonium, Senecio, Mesembs, and more.
These baby's grow so well in filtered light, I think they will be twice this size at the end of summer. Find them in my shop with 25% off this month @ www.plantaveria.etsy.com
One year old pot I made for my grandparents, it's still growing! I only cut back the Sedum a little bit to rejuvenate them.
Today I've made a very unusual dinner. The recipe: -Nettles -Dandelion leafs -Good king Henry -Chard -Stems of Garlic (like Scallion) -Parsley -Oregano -Chili -Pasta sauce with cheese -Pasta -Parmesan So, how was it? Ehm well, quite ok. But, I forgot to chop up the nettles and they remained a little though, despite them having been cooked thoroughly. Let's say the flavour was good. The texture could have been better. I'll make it again and improve!
Good king Henry is such a great perennial vegetable, I have my plants for three years now and harvest often! You do need a lot of plants to harvest properly but they're easily grown from seed. Chenopodium bonus-henricus
One of my fav places to go.

I made some new Sempervivum arrangements last weekend, they are still a bit rough but it's getting better I think! Got any tips for improvement? Let me know in the comments! ⬇☺
It's been so dry lately the Sempervivums couldnt be happier!
Taurus is almost blooming, it took pretty long for the stalks to reach this height!
Today I can show you my first ever blooming Cactus! This Mammilaria I left in the unheated greenhouse all winter where it even had -2 Celcius, but it worked!
Beech seedling! I'm growing some oaks, Maples and beeches to give away for free to anyone that can give it a place where it can live a long time! It is pretty amazing to consider that this little plant is capable of out-living me, my future children, their children and their children and theirs and.....😲 in that time it will absorb tonnes of carbon dioxide and provide a home for thousants of creatures.
I've just finished my first colored hypertufa pot and dish, I think they've turned out pretty good :) one dish broke while I tried to remove it from the mold, so I decided to destroy the other plastic bowl to get at least one dish out in one peace. I might make some silicone molds in the future. I also drilled in a drainage hole and the letters of my etsy shop Plantaveria. What do you think? The color will be a bit lighter when it has dried up completely in about 3 weeks time.
I love how this Kale looks! Finally some was ready for harvest in the greenhouse. The warm weather we've had recently made it bolt though, so it won't be a large crop! Seeded new ones already!
Last year I took seeds from white pineappel strawberries and they did pretty well! I wonder what kind of strawberries they will produce 🍓🍓
Sugarsnaps have, as a member of the Leguminosae a symbiotic relationship with bacteria that live on the roots. These are the small round things you see in the second picture. These bacteria provide Nitrogen to the plant in exchange for photosynthesis products.
Also new: Stone hypertufa pot with Senecio herrianus. Complete DIY set https://etsy.me/2JzkS16 let me know if you like it! :)
Check out this new listing, I love these pots! Stone hypertufa pot with Saxifraga stolonifera. Complete DIY set https://etsy.me/2Yitw7o
This Echeveria variety is pretty hardy, one survived outside the entire winter.. (which also tells something about our last winter..) It had at least -2 Celcius and was soaked for months. Altough it's common I love it! Should I put one on etsy? ☺
I made this new arrangement today, for someone with a oakwood interior, I hope it will fit in!
Now available in my etsyshop: Sempervivum 3 pack, different varieties! Come and see! https://etsy.me/2EoUcdE
I think this is one of the most perfect plants in our house, it isn't mine though I wish it was 😅 what surprises me is that this Aloe aristata seems to like it's really shady spot. I knew it didn't like full sun but, thís shady?! 😰 It stands front of a shaded North window, half behind a curtain and it loves it! All credit goes to my girl for growing this beauty.
Here is what one of my last year's sempervivum cups looks like after winter, it needs a little more sedum but the sempervivum seems to thrive even in a little bit of soil.
