Succulent plants are riding a seemingly endless wave of public adoration. They’re extremely varied in form, color and texture, easy to grow and propagate, and suit just about any cool DIY project that calls for something to plant. Looking for inspiration? Check Pinterest for a world of cool ideas using them. Some of the most popular genera include Echeveria, Sedum, Kalanchoe, Euphorbia, and Sempervivum—but there are many. The best part is, they’re perfect for anyone interested in bringing a bit of green to their indoor space—even if you’ve never picked up a garden tool.
In addition to their year-round stock of thousands of succulent plants, North Haven Gardens in Preston Hollow is offering a perfect class on Saturday, January 21st at 1pm focused on getting started with succulents for your own space. Attendees will join NHG’s Container Specialist Paula Spletter, herself a Dallas County Master Gardener and experienced succulent grower, to detail the differences in easily grown varieties and their care. In addition, grooming, display tips, and dealing with diseases will be discussed. The class is $25 per attendee and includes a succulent care goodie bag curated by Paula herself.
January is ‘Indoor Gardening Month’—so if you’re curious to try your hand with succulents, it’s a perfect opportunity to get started at NHG.
