The common names for Sempervivum plants include houseleeks, as they were known to root on the roofs of houses.  Today they make good specimens to grow on shallow living roof displays. They are also known as Hens and Chicks, as the mother plant sends out many offsets that grow closely around her. These offsets can be replanted and grown on to form new clusters. 

The literal meaning of Sempervivum is ‘always alive’ because they are tolerant of extreme temperatures and drought which makes them extremely hardy if given the correct conditions.

Size guide - Pack of 3 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Sempervivums are easy to grow and if given the correct conditions they will thrive. 

Use a compost mixed with horticultural grit or Perlite as this will aid drainage.  Pot on each plant into in individual pot. Water in but do not stand the pot in excess water. Succulents do not like their roots wet as this makes them prone to rot. 

When transferring into final growing position ensure the area is well-drained and the growing medium has a mixture of compost/garden soil and horticultural grit. 

Sempervivums make good houseplants placed inside on a sunny windowsill or outdoors in full sun on a well-drained gritty site.
