Tomorrow is the big day! One of the items that you can bid on is a succulent garden for your very own. Terri hosted a planting party which resulted in these centerpieces for the tables. Here is how they looked when first done a month ago or so. It will be fun to see how much they have grown. See you at the auction!
It’s time to start thinking about planting. Succulents are beautiful little plants that do well in the garden and in pots. Since they can be quite costly at the garden center, it would be great if you could get your own free plants! How do you do it? Propagating, of course! Here are 4 easy steps.
In the photo to the left is a propagated night blooming cereus. You may remember that Terri gave out some cuttings one meeting a while back. I decided to try it and it turned out well – notice the new growth on either side of the base of the plant. If you look hard you will see a small shoot on the left. I fully expect to see flowers in a century or so. If I can do it, you can too!
Can you tell the difference between a Thanksgiving and a Christmas cactus?
