Why Grow Succulents?
Succulents are oh, so much fun to grow in your own garden. If you live in a hot and sunny climate like we do, you are accustomed to seeing succulents around every bend. Even if you don’t live in the middle of the desert, you can still make succulents work for your space.
Succulents are extremely satisfying to nurture and grow on your own. Similarly to other gardens, a succulent garden will thrive if given the right environment and attention. These plants are wonderful to grow because they truly do not need too much upkeep, and they are full of surprises, like blooming flowers.
If you feel like you have had a difficult time keeping your plants alive in the past, growing succulents is a great place to start when getting back into greenery. They are easy, fulfilling, and they are sure to brighten up any space.
Take a look at these trends in succulent gardening that we were inspired by.
