How to Plant Hens and Chickens

A few weeks ago, a neighbor gave me a small start of hens and chickens. I have seen and admired these on other people’s porch, but never had my own. I left them in the milk jug for a few weeks and let them just continue to grow. But a few weeks ago I picked up a terra cotta pot and transplanted my starts. Now they are growing in their new home on my back yard.

I had a hard time finding a terra cotta pot for my starts. I finally found a 1 gallon pot for less than $5.00 at a gardening store nearby. I came home and dug a shovel of gardening soil and filled the pot. I added a start of the hens and chicks in each opening. Now I am just enjoying them and hoping they will grow.
