Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
There's always something new to see or learn at the nursery. We want our friends to love their gardens and have the knowledge they need to care for it and keep it looking great.
Succulents and cactus are less demanding than other garden plants but, they do best when properly cared for. They have awesome survival skills that help when water is restricted. We are often asked questions about the plants at the Farmstand. When choosing plants that will go into a pot on the patio, into your garden beds outside or or will live inside with you there are a few simple tips to keep in mind. If you buy a small plant it may outgrow your pot or space evertually. Big plants start out as small plants but like people some will grow taller or wider in time. You can choose plants that will stay small or use the opportunity to move overgrown plants into another pot or into your garden beds and plant new small plants into your old pot. You will find that your planting skills and your plant collection are growing!

You might have more questions about succulent plants. Stop by the nursery and meet Gillian and Kayli. They love plants and would love to share what they know about succulents and cactus. You can also join a succulent and cactus group in your area. There are local affiliates of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America near you. Each group has meetings and shows throughout the year where you can see plants, meet experts and learn from other growers.
