Learn what it takes to keep these water-wise plants happy and healthy.
Linda Roark, designer of Gamble’s beautiful succulent container gardens, will talk about planting and caring for succulents, and how to divide and propagate ones that are overgrown. Bring your own overgrown succulent to divide and share and exchange your cuttings with others. Gamble will also have some cuttings and provide you with a terracotta pot and soil for you to bring a beautiful cutting home to add to your collection. Linda will have a slide presentation, and afterward will supervise a hands-on workshop in dividing and propagating the succulents. Be prepared to get your hands dirty.
