When so little else is blooming fully, kalanchoes brighten up the garden! Hardly noticable most of the year, this is their time to shine. Mine edge part of our driveway and were all grown from leaf or stem cuttings from my mother-in-law. As soon as they've finished blooming, take your cuttings. Wait a few days for the cutting end to dry a bit before planting them. No need to root these in pots first - you can just poke the cut end right directly in your garden. Water, but let the ground dry out between waterings. Look for new growth within a month or six weeks.
