Old growth underneath hens and chicks
New growth on top of dead growth
I have 3 hens and chicks and they all do the same thing. As they grow, each plant seems to keep a large amount of dead "undergrowth"(my term).
The new growth piles on top of the old and just keeps getting taller and taller. I thought these old dead undergrowths would fall off eventually but they never have.
I understand my soil is not up to par and I will be changing that in spring. Until then, I am wondering what to do. I feel it may keep them from being watered correctly since there is so much dead material.
I'm thinking in the spring I would replant in the new soil and try to get this old growth off. What do you think?
Thank you for the help!
