    Well, I am glad I opened this topic. A couple of days ago, one of the stems fell off. I was upset when it happened - even though I was expecting it. Goodness knows how I would have felt, if I hadn't been warned. There are five new rosettes growing near where the other was previously.

    Silver Saxifrage info.

    Thanks. Did not look through the images. Sadly the Data allowance gets used up very quickly on images. Disappointingly that means the one I have labelled as it, is not, the flowers are pure white.

    An Alternative Planting for a Strawberry Pot

    I wish I had a strawberry pot. Lots of possibilities and ideas to be had. Going to have a look for a second hand pot.
