Its amazing how quickly the Sedum jumps into life as soon as the weather warms a little. I saw Matty, our horticulturist today and he said over the weekend everything has suddenly come into life. It has been that much milder. However today we had snow first thing but the sun came out very quickly and enough to keep the plants warm as the tiny sprinkling of snow melted. We are now trying to get the old mats up which did not survive the wet summer we had a couple of years ago. The sedum became waterlogged in a few places on the farm and now we need to lift them and replant. Easier said than done. I shall leave it to Matty and Piot as to how to lift them but the fields are so muddy I don’t know how they will do it.
