Welcome Eviesmummy -  your semps are looking happy enough right now in their temporary homes- can't say the same for the poor cat trying so hard to find a sunny spot in which to snooze!

Well, I have just started with some Semps.
I want to see if I can grow them into nice colonies.
Can't imagine why you wouldn't be able to.  They are very easy and accommodating plants and don't need any special conditions or treatment in these parts... the only thing they can't take is too much sogginess.

 Nice for the gardeners to have something in common with our plants, isn't it? ::) ;D

This Sempervivum/Jovibarba was a recent, un-named, raffle prize.

I would be grateful if someone could but a name to it for me.

Many thanks, Chris

Sempervivum octopodes from Mt Pelister. This now considered by some to be a form of S. ciliosum. Quite distinct with its very long runners which I hope are visible.
