Succulents are a great addition to any garden, especially here in the Prescott area they are a wonderful way to add new shapes and texture.

They are simple to grow and love bright light, adding succulents to any garden Is a simple way to spruce up your property without breaking the bank. If a succulent does not get enough light, the plant will begin to stretch, which is easily corrected with pruning. The best part is residual leaves can often be propagated and replanted, which can help your garden grow quickly and at no cost.

When selecting a succulent for use outdoors, there are several varieties whisk can survive all year long. “Hen and chicks (Crassulaceaeaceae)” is a good example of this type of hearty succulent, they are frequently used as ground cover. This is a good choice for homes with children and pets, as the leaves are not toxic and do not have spines or ridges.

Watering succulents is something of a hot topic, as too much or too little may cause the plant to die. Plants should only be watered when the soil is completely dry, usually about one month between watering’s is a good rule of thumb. If a plant gets too wet, it will start to lose leaves and change color. A gardener can prevent much of this by using the correct soil (designed for cacti and succulents) and monitoring the plants.

In conclusion, succulents can be a perfect, desert friendly addition to your home. Gardeners have been delighted for years due to the variety of shapes and colors offered by this type of plant. Plus, it is one of the few who can be watered just once a month and thrive. Why not give it a try today?
