This month’s RHS magazine arrived a few days ago. It includes an article about Sempervivums.

Apparently they are undergoing an upsurge in interest . I’m such a trendsetter – LOL

But the last few words of the articles sent a chill down my spine when I read that they “can easily become addictive. Like stamp collecting, they may become a lifetime obsession.”

Alarmed, that I have inadvertently become a mad obsessive. I rushed out and counted mine.

I have twelve, which is about twice what I would have guessed at, still it’s someway off the 698 cultivars listed in the RHS Plant Finder.

So a few more would be fine wouldn’t it?
