Succulents  Succulents  Succulents
We all love our succulent gardens in the winter. So, here are a few tips for helping your succulents survive the winter.
  • Succulents cannot survive cold temperatures during winter so you need to bring them inside.  They have to stay at a temp between 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you put them in a shed or garage be sure the temp is right. Otherwise, bring them in your house.
  • Succulents need at least 3-4 hours of sunlight per day. They can survive on less during the winter and also survive on indirect sunlight during winter.
  • Water them deeply only once every one or two months. Pour water into soil until it drains out the bottom and then do not water again for up to two months. They do not need as much water in the winter.
  • Do not fertilize during the winter. Too much fertilizer can cause droopy leaves which lead to rot.
I hope this is helpful for you so that you can enjoy your succulent garden all winter.
We have a nice supply of succulent wreaths for sale. I must say, they were quite beautiful. We even have all the supplies if you want to make your own. A great holiday gift idea!
