Re: CULT: Companion Plants--Sempervivums?

Are you sure that your cheres enfants are in such imminent peril? I
non-chalantly leave my sempervivums clambering out of the confinement of
their pots unclothed to the winter winds - which I expect have a sharper
bite here than in your locale - without ill effect. One must assume, after
all, that their name was not chosen at random.

I am relieved, however, at the responses that your inquiry has elicited as
I replanted some SDBs (including that ever-so-shy shrinking violet,
CHANTED, to mix botanical metaphors) close to an established in ground
planting of sempervivums this summer. They have not intermingled as yet,
but when they do, I can now sleep more soundly - and in my waking moments I
shall be looking forward to your forthcoming ROOTS articles.

"The woods decay, the woods decay and fall,
 The vapors weep their burthen to the ground,
 Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,
 And after many a summer dies the swan."
