  1. Morning. What is your soil mix for succulents in the summer and for overwintering? Do you use different soil in your winter pots than summer pots? Thanks

  2. We create our own succulent mix…we use a heavier potting soil with composted bark (Fafard52) that is used for perennials & shrubs, and then we cut it with it (1/3) perlite and (1/3)coarse sand. We throw in a small amount of plant tone as a light fertilizer. We use the same soil mix both summer and winter.
