Potted Succulents

 

Time to give a refresh to potted succulents past their prime. With the exception of the pink Speedwell ‘First Love’ perennials, all the other plants are cuttings or replants from other areas of the yard. The two-colored aeoium or Saucer Plant is an especially easy to grow succulent from cuttings – old plants make new plants. Cut and dip in rooting hormone (I use Miracle-Gro Fast Root) but don’t often wait for the stem to callus over. Also seen here, an aloe which had outgrown it’s pot. Adding some summer interest like flowers can be a little tricky, as they might require more water than the succulents. Have fun planting! Send us your weekend re-pot.
