Plant Hen And Chicks in garden beds or container gardens that provide very well-drained soil in sun or part shade. A great plant for the rock garden; it's right at home around rocks and boulders.

Hens and Chicks require little if any fertilization. I never fertilize them. If you do, use a mild organic plant food in spring.

Consistently wet or damp soil is a killer. Other than that, Hens and Chicks are a tough, durable plant.
