RedEnvelope For Great Christmas Gifts

Although I love lowers and beautiful flower gardens, I have absolutely no skill or luck planting. I wish I could blame the soil here on the sandy east coast shore or the zero water table, but the reality is I don’t make the best selections horticulturally. That’s why I decided to listen to someone with a green thumb and stick with evergreens. The last thing I planted, my blue spruce, grew almost three stories high. Hubby actually needed a bucket truck to get to the top when he did outside decorations. A quarter century+ old, it took up the entire front yard from the street right up to the front entrance. I cried when we had to have it cut down.

Recently I was going over old pictures and found a picture of my mother planting a garden of hens and chicks. I remember how well they thrived and spread. So when Red Envelope invited me to pick something from their many great Christmas gifts, low maintenance me chose herbaceous evergreen perennial hens and chicks. My walk down memory lane prodded me to select hens and chicks. Hens and chicks are foliage that flowers. These sempervivum grow in average to poor soil, like full sun, and are easy to maintain. They live forever, easily root, propagate well, are hardy in the cold, and tolerant in drought.

There is an old adage, “When in doubt bring flowers.” I personally prefer plants. I bet the people you visit over the holidays do as well. I really am thrilled at this product. What a center of attention now! What an addition to my barren garden come spring!

Hen and chick growing kits include two cute but not garish ceramic planters ( 7 7/8″ x 5 3/4″ x 5 3/8″_5 3/8″ x 4 1/7″ x 3 1/2 “) plus the mother plant. The rosette chicks as tiny plant buds grow around the hen until separated. then they make their own roots and concentrically spread, spread, spread. Affordable at $59.95, think GREEN. After all it is the color of the holiday season.

Readers, I truly recommend RedEnvelope. Its great brands, great variety, great prices, and great shipping will not disappoint. When purchasing most things I tend to be touchy feely. Not necessary here though as ordering is simple, customer service solid, and purchases have WOW!
