Pluricaule, S. spathulifolium ‘Purpureum,’ S. spurium ‘Fuldaglut’ (stonecrop) 1 Measure and cut four wooden batons from the sawn timber to fit along the front and back edges of the birdhouse roof, angling one end of each of them so that they marry up at the top. Pre-drill holes in the wood and screw the wooden batons onto the roof. Measure and cut another two batons to fit along the side edges of the roof, pre-drilling and screwing them between the front and back pieces, as shown. 2 Paint the whole birdhouse and then leave it to dry thoroughly.
Tip: Choose alpines or small-scale plants for your teacups. Alternatively, plant small bulbs, such as snowdrops, dwarf narcissi, or grape hyacinths, in the winter so that you will have a pretty floral display in spring. 3 Take the plant out of its plastic pot and gently shake off any excess potting mix. Position the plant in the cup and fill round the edges with more potting mix so that the plant sits firmly in place. Plant the remaining teacups in the same way. 4 Sprinkle some fine gravel over the surface of the potting mix in each cup, making sure that it is completely covered.
Take the pot out of the water and leave to drain. The plant should recover within a few hours. • Supplementary feeding There are plenty of fertilizers and plant food mixtures available, some for specific plants (such as roses and tomatoes) and others for more general use. Slow-release general-purpose fertilizers can be added to the potting mix in the container when planting up or gently worked into the surface of the mix after planting with a hand fork. Alternatively, you can feed the plants regularly (either weekly or fortnightly) with a diluted liquid general-purpose fertilizer throughout the growing season (according to the manufacturer’s instructions).
