Jade Plant Before and After


Hello everyone,
How is your week going? We are having 
a heat wave here in Northern California.
Thursday they predict the temps will reach the 90's.
I am loving the warm weather. I have so many 
projects to play with in my garden this year.
But wait...You came to see a 
Before and After Jade Plant.
Well you are in luck, because there are 
Two Jade Plants.
I have two Jade Plants I bought in 2010 at the grocery store for $5.00 each.
Today they are beautiful and healthy plants.
This is one of the plants I bought in 2010. 
I did a tablescape with the plants and some
wild life and you can see how small they were then.
The plants were so small, I can't believe how they have grown and
are so beautiful today.
This is Jade Plant #2
How do I care for my Jade Plants?
In the spring after I'm sure there will
be no more frost, I bring the plants
out into the sunlight.
They are blooming now.
We have a place in the back corner of the patio, where 
all the tender plants are stored and watered everyday
during the winter. I have a burlap cover if I 
know the frost will hit in the morning. 
In the summer the Jade Plants are protected from
the harsh sun under the patio, and watered daily
by a watering system we have installed to
water all the plants in garden.
This plant is happy...So if you are in the grocery store and see
a little Jade Plant~ think of me.

Thanks for visiting today and please come back soon.
Joyously,
Betty

  1. I'm so jealous!! I have a jade plant that someone gave me from cuttings and it HATES ME!!! I usually do so well with plants but just can't keep the jade plant happy - much of it has rotted away, all that's left now is one stem in the middle with some leaves. I have cut back on watering to see if that will help....fingers crossed!! Yours are lovely - thanks for this post!

  2. I have seen this plant in Greece many times. But being that I have a brown thumb I've also managed to kill it. Yours is so beautiful and I've never seen it bloom before. Your photos are lovely. I am co hosting a link party and would love to have you link up with us.

  3. I used to have a wonderful jade plant when I was younger...it lived indoors because of our weather....and then I saw a jade bush about 5 ft tall and 4 ft wide where my uncle lived in Ventura, CA. And when I saw all your lovely pictures I was reminded of him!

  6. Must be the northern climate I live in, but jade plants don't do well around here! Like Mountain Mama, I have a hard time with them. I have a teeny one right now - indoors. We'll see if it makes it long enough to go outdoors once the weather warms up. I can't believe how huge your jade plants are! I didn't know they flowered like that - so pretty.

  7. Your jades are beautiful! I love the plant, but I think it might be too warm here in the AZ desert. Are jades a type of succulent, because succulents do fairly well here. Hmmm....I may be on the hunt for a jade!

  8. Betty, I have six grandsons ranging in age 5 to 20. Also I have a large jade that we move up one floor and out on the southern exposer screened porch every spring (we live in Michigan); however, I didn't know it could bloom. Lovely.
