If you’re new to houseleeks, here are a few reasons
to give them a try:
A huge number of varieties to choose from with variations in colour, leaf shape/texture, size and habit.
A selection can provide year round interest.
Hardy and drought tolerant – will do well in areas of low summer rainfall.
Are tolerant of neglect, so you do not need to worry about them whilst away on holiday (but they will do better with a little tlc – as we all do!)
Ideal for a sunny spot in well-drained soil.
A large collection can be grown in a small garden.
Versatile – can be grown on a sunny rockery, in raised beds, in pots and containers, between paving slabs, on the tops and sides of walls, or in hanging containers.
They associate well with other sun-loving, non-invasive alpines.
