Succulents are one of my favorite plants to grow in the garden indoors and out. Succulent plants are stems that are fleshy and used to store water. Thanks to the plants structure it is drought tolerable. In today’s post I share how to easily grow a succulent garden.
How to Easily Grow A Succulent Garden
I’ve been growing succulents for over 20 years now in my home garden. It is exciting to share some of my collection in the video below. In the video I share how to use pruning scraps or cuttings to create your own succulent garden.
Do not over water the plant. I like growing the succulents in pumice or gravel because it insures the plant roots are not sitting in water. Be sure your plant container or garden has sufficient drainage. Be sure the soil or stone does not feel wet – this means it needs to dry out. The succulent garden will grow best in sunshine but can take shade as well. Please note the plant leaves may change colors if you grow in shade.
One of my favorite things to take photos of are succulents. The plant has so many different characteristics. Below are some of my favorite photos of succulent gardens.
