I love the late summer colour our sedums bring to the garden but ours would always fall open leaving a bare centre.
In spring my husband had the idea of giving them some support. We found what he was looking for at our local garden centre and we bought two. We later realised that we really needed three and will get one more next spring but having two out of three gives me the chance to demonstrate the beauty of the plant support.
It’s in the centre of the photo behind the hyacinth with the support just above it.
At the time I was photographing the spring bulbs but you can see the sedum next to them with the plant support in place ready for it to grow up through it.
It has flopped open leaving bare stems in the middle.
The plant support is now invisible but the sedum has stayed together and the look is much improved. It now remains looking beautiful. Sometimes something very simple can be very effective.
