Fun with Succulents!

June 14, 2012 Botanical, Gardening 0 Comments

I put a succulent garden together for my sister-in-law a few weeks ago and I liked it so much that I put a small one together for myself. I found a container that I liked and squished three happy little succulents into it. And then took a bunch of pictures of it. My plants don’t know it but they’re some of the most photographed plants around.

I’ve been reading up a little about succulents and there is a bit of conflicting information about them online. (Is there any topic for which there isn’t conflicting information online)? A lot of succulents are winter hardy and can stay outside year-round. But not all of them. Some succulents like to be watered regularly – for others it can make their roots rot. It would appear that most of them like lots of sun – the one thing that I don’t have a lot of in my yard! I think one of my three succulents is only partially winter hardy, which means it can only handle being a little bit cold. So I guess I’ll be bringing them inside in the fall!
