Top tips

  • Make sure your succulents get enough light
  • Overwatering can kill your succulent, so make sure you let the soil dry between waterings.
  • Most succulents need very little water, unless otherwise advised. However, even for those that do require water, rather give too little water than too much. As these plants mostly thrive in arid conditions, place them in bright direct sunlight rather than deep shade
  • When you do water your succulents, water well.
  • Succulents don’t like to sit in waterlogged soil, so drainage is important to prevent rot. Your container should have a drainage hole to allow excess water to escape. Terra-cotta pots are ideal for beginners.
  • Succulent roots are very fragile so be gentle when repotting.
  • Succulents don’t need much fertiliser, but you can give them light feedings during the spring and summer growing season. Be careful not to overfertilise—this can cause your succulent to grow too quickly and become weak.
  • Succulents do very well on slopes and can be very useful in binding the soil and preventing erosion.
  • Succulents are extremely versatile and can be used as bed fillers, as landscaping gems, for container landscaping, as paving boundaries, and for contrasting colour and foliage.
