Pike Nurseries: Succulents

Posted: Updated:

Succulents are one of the biggest trends in gardening.  They're easy to grow, draught tolerant and require almost no maintenance.  Easy, right?  Pike Nurseries' Melodie McDanal joined Good Day to show us exactly what to do with them.

Pike Q&A: Succulents:

What are succulents?
Succulents are plants that store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems.  They are very heat and drought tolerant.

Why are succulents popular?
Succulents are extremely diverse and come in many colors, shapes and sizes.  They have clean lines which make them very architectural and modern.  They are super easy to grow.

How to grow succulents
The most important thing for succulents is well draining soil.  Succulents store their own water, so they need very little water.  Succulents love the sun, so plant them in a spot that receives 8 or more hours of sunlight.

To get enough drainage, plant soils in EB Stone Cactus Mix in containers or mix into the ground.  Succulents thrive on warm, hot weather and many varieties won't make it through our winters.  Plant succulents in containers and bring indoors when the average night time temperature is similar to the temperature inside your home.
