In this class, we’ll learn that these water preserving plants are an easy-care choice for both indoor and outdoor gardeners. Many varieties are available as annuals, but can be wintered over and enjoyed again and again. Multiple succulent plants planted together make a big statement in a deco pot or a container garden.

Additional Information

Succulents are low-maintenance and drought tolerant plants that preserve water in their leaves. They are easy to grow indoors and outdoors. Many varieties are annuals and can be summered outside and travel indoors for the winter. Multiple plants grown together in pots make an eye-catching garden. They have shallow root systems and are not aggressive growers. No special soil is needed and shallow containers work well for growing succulents. These plants are also easy to propagate and can be shared with friends!

Availability: Most evenings, weekends (excluding mid-March thru June.) Prefer to travel maximum of 30 minutes one-way from my home in Lee's Summit.
