I have a small houseleek plant in a pot, how do I look after it? and can it stay outside all winter?

The house leek, is perfectly hardy and can be planted in the open.

It is best treated as an alpine, this means it must be grown in a sunny position, in gritty soil that is well drained.

Alternatively, it can be planted in a trough or in rock crevices.

If the position is to its liking, it will soon spread to form a large mat of attractive rosettes, which in turn can be removed to increase stock.
