This plant has a low trailing habit, here it's spilling over the side of a raised bed. It's more or less taken over a raised bed where I'd really prefer to grow herbs so considering moving this. As far as I remember it has yellow five-petalled flowers for most of the Summer.

I bought the other plant last year at a garden centre in Wicklow, but it's still sitting in the pot, looking sadly neglected. But time to plant it out now. No plant tag on this one, but I figure it's something like hens and chickens, but leaves are not as fleshy.

The plant in the pot is London Pride: a pretty and useful groundcover in my garden. Given the right conditions it will quickly spread - however, it is easy to control.
I can't remember the name of the other plant but I think it might be a stonecrop or a sedum. It is quite common and a nice plant in the right place. It should move easily enough if you select healthy young pieces to transplant. Always water plants well after transplanting and be careful they don't dry out before they have grown new roots into the surrounding soil.

Thank you very much!
