It’s lovely in and around rocks, adding great texture to the garden. Chicks are happy to be removed and planted independently, and will then become hens in their own right. After two or three years a hen will flower, signalling the end of its life. By that point it will have produced many chicks, and hopefully meets its demise with the sense of a job well done.
