Planting Sedum, Hens and Chicks Near My Pool

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, we're always working off a long list of gardening tasks. This time of year, my gardeners are constantly weeding the beds, pruning and grooming various specimens, or potting young plants in ornamental containers.

Last week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, planted a couple of stone vessels near my pool with sedum and various hens and chicks - those charming mat-forming succulents with fleshy pointed leaves arranged in rosettes. It's always nice to see these interesting plants displayed around the farm during the warm season.
