Xeria e-Zine
November 15, 2021

Winter is on the horizon, but there could still be a tiny window of opportunity to plant some spring flowering bulbs, as long as the ground is not frozen. Plan your garden accordingly for a fabulous spring display.


Glory Be, the root cellar, was one of my first forays into green roofs. The Sedum I planted on top is thriving in the thin soil, in all weathers.


Sempervivum are one of my favorite hardy succulents. The colors! The textures! And their toughness. They don't mind winter, in fact, they prefer it! Don't try to bring these cold tolerant plants indoors; they'll just get bugs, and struggle.
Trying to decide which shrubs to plant that don't need tons of water and care? See my list of best shrubs for xeriscaping. Maybe you'll find the perfect candidate for your garden.
I hope you've enjoyed this issue of Xeria e-Zine! Any questions or suggestions are welcome. Don't forget, the Horticulturist is always in.

Happy Gardening,
