The Q&A Archives: succulent plants

Question: What is the best soil to use to grow succulent plants?

Answer: Diane,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Succulents are a large and varied group of plants. However a general mix would have quite a bit of sand for optimum drainage, especially on the surface of the mix.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
