Dog days are here, and I'm hiding in the shade to stay cool. How about you? At least our plants don't mind. Either they thrive regardless, or they go dormant.
There is still time to transplant and move your succulents into the fall, but they still need some time to adapt to new environments and conditions. I transplant in the evening if possible, so they can spend the night adjusting. Then I water them daily for a week or so, until I forget, and that seems to do the trick.
So your plants are doing well, and you inspect and admire them every day. But suddenly, something's eating them! Now what?
In the heat of summer, sometimes your garden is struggling and might look a little drab if the flowers are done. That's okay, there are a lot of garden whimsies that can pick up the slack.
Just because it's hot out, it doesn't mean you can't be thinking and dreaming and planning your new micro business. Maybe it's all about succulents!
Coming soon - more garden art tutorials and treasures made from trash but only if you said that you would like more of these kinds of things in the survey. These will be presented on one of my other sites, and available soon - watch for it in your inbox!
