Hens and Chicks filled boot with elephant trunk plant.
by Theresa Wright
Is this a hens and chicks in a boot or a strange looking elephant?
Here is my dad's old work boot filled with his hens and chicks.
All I did was take a knife and cut out long slit like holes where I wanted to plant each one.
I filled the boot with dirt.
Then I dipped each plant into slightly damp dirt and pushed them into each hole.
On top I loaded the dirt with a bunch of hens and chicks. The hens and chicks filled boot looked so great.
Then last summer the weirdest thing happened. As the summer went on the front hen and chick started to grow out. By the end of summer it looked like this. From farther away it looks just like an elephant!! Can't wait to see what it does this summer.
