You are right, Jo. It may be that Mary's hens and chicks have had too much water. Drainage is very important to them thus is also why they do so well in a rock garden.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I actually have 2 clay pots of them, with drains and I took the saucer out from under them. They both look dead. I'll wait to see if there is any life and need to check in one of my flower beds to see if those are waking up.

Thanks again, mary

I agree, I don't think the cold should bother them at all. I have mine in a pot also and they are fine. There are always a few in there that do die each year though.
And I have had them die when they have sat in water too long. Do yours have a drain in the pot?


Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

I don't bring mine in and I live considerably North of you in Northeast Missouri up by the Iowa line.

I am going to clean the pot this afternoon and move it south of the patio.

Do keep me posted about yours....and nice to meet you.

Thanks Sunny. Other years they have turned to a darker color, but just greened up and multiplied. I did see a couple green leaves in the pot, but thought maybe I should bring the pot in for the winter. Enjoy your Monday.

Mary - I thought my Hens and Chicks had died also but they now look like they might make it so hang in there and wait a while before you pull them up.

Hugs, Sunny

Good morning! Hoping for a followup of yesterday;s 78 degrees.

I was wondering how to keep these plants alive over winter? Looks like mine were killed from the weather, which usually doesn't happen. I put them up against my house on the south side and we didn't have any bitter temps and no ice storms that should have caused this. Just wondering if I should have brought them in? Tnx, mary
