Wooly Pockets--Done Right

I've seen some bad Wooly Pocket use. This is not one of those--this example is beautiful:

We went to Roger's on Sunday. It was blustery, cold, and rain threatened. Rare here this late in the rainy season, though in Scotland this type of weather is known as "summer". But the terrific use of Wooly Pockets at the front entrance was worth the shivering. Well grown Bird's Nest (Asplenium) and other ferns, and bromiliads.

Umbrellas were hung upside down in the pitched-roof pavilion. Very cool:

And in a sunny area, an eye-catching companion for Agave 'Joe Hoak' is a variegated Aeonium arborescens and Echeveria agavoides. My 'Joe' is surrounded by blue (Mariana sedifolia and Senecio mandraliscae) and not nearly so effective.

Looks so good! How I wish I had design sense.

  1. That looks like an awesome nursery! Love the fern plantings and the combination of the succulents is indeed stunning and inspiring! Reminds me that I have to give my succulents some attention...

  2. I can't believe you just said you wish you had design sense. That's like Fred Astaire saying he wishes he could dance.
