Planting Hens and Chicks
Posted by F&S
We, Frenchies, saw Shaun and Wilmer planting succulents along the stone paths the other day and it seemed like they needed some help. Like so many things in this world, gardening comes naturally to us and our help was greatly appreciated.
1 Hi, Shaun! We're here to help you and Wilmer plant the succulents.
2 We know you rely on our expertise to get the job done.
3 You're wondering where to place that one? I can assist you with that.
4 From my vantage point, this is the perfect spot! The idea is to stagger them. You want them to look as though they've been here all along.
5 First you clear away the gravel and don't lose any! We'll need it at the end.
6 Now, to dig a perfect little hole.
7 And now, just plop this baby right in!
8 Push back the gravel and Voila! Very nicely done! Be sure to water so the roots can get established.
9 Sharkey, you can't have all the fun. Let me plant this one.
10 This is the perfect spot!
11 Sharkey, I've dug so many holes I can do it without even looking!
12 Wilmer, don't you agree that I work fast and neat?
13 Now that's a good position.
14 Back-fill with soil and replace the gravel.
15 Well Wilmer, what do you think? Don't I have some great gardening skills?
16 No, thanks anyway, Wilmer, but Sharkey and I don't want to work for you full time. Feel free, however, to call on us to help with special projects.
