Grow Your Vertical Succulent Garden

If you are concerned with keeping a garden during the summer, an easy to care for plant is the succulent. Cacti kind of have a bad wrap with their thorns and rough looking exterior, when in fact, cacti and other succulents have lived in Santa Clarita long before we have.

Yucca and Joshua Trees are still prevalent in the Antelope Valley and inhabit other parts of the valley. While many think these kinds of plants are like a weed, they are actually a gardener with a black thumb’s dream.

Succulents are easy to grow and care for, especially considering these plants were here before we were. There are many types of interesting succulents to make your desert garden stand out.

Other than cacti, there are Aloe, Adenia, Ice Plant and Aeonium, Lindleyii. These plants have a unique shape that can add style to your desert garden. Some of these succulents even have bright blooming flowers.

When planting succulents outside, a gardener should consider that they need lots of sunlight. Succulents require little water considering they are desert plants. It is usually recommended to water them once a week with just enough water to make the soil damp to keep the plants healthy.

A unique way to make a succulent garden would be to make it like art hanging on a wall. All you need to do is make or buy a wooden box garden with mesh, pick “pups” (small, almost inch long flower bud-like parts of the plant) and add cactus mix soil.

Work in the cactus mix through the mesh of the box so that is will stay between the wooden back and mesh when hung. Then you plant the pups by poking the stem between the mesh and fill the box with pups.

Lastly, wait a month to three months to hang your succulent art so that the roots may anchor themselves and your art doesn’t crumble in front of you. Sunset Landscaping has great gardening supplies and plants to help get your vertical garden started. Stop by at 23256 Lyons Ave, Santa Clarita CA 91321-2633 for a visit or you can call 661-255-8777 with any questions.
