We’ve all picked up a cute little succulent from the garden centre or grocery store, only to have it die a horrible death a few months later. How could this happen? Succulents are supposed to be easy!!
While succulents don’t require as much maintenance as other plants, they’re not fool-proof. Here’s what you need to know to keep yours alive and thriving over the winter months.
Disclaimer: I garden in zone 3b on the Canadian Prairies. While I make every effort to make my advice as applicable to as many people as possible, growing conditions in your area might be vastly different. However, I love to hear from readers in other areas, so let us know in the comments if there’s a different way to keep succulents alive where you live!
