Repotting Succulents in My Greenhouse

I have always loved evergreen succulents. With their fleshy leaves and extraordinary forms, succulents are easy to maintain and make excellent container plants - I have quite a few of these popular specimens in my collection.

A general rule of thumb is to repot succulents every two-years, at least as a way to provide fresh fertile soil. The best time to repot is at the beginning of a succulent’s growing season - this gives the plant the highest chance of survival. Earlier this week while it was snowing outside, my gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, took the opportunity to repot a good number of succulents and to propagate a selection of cuttings. Here are some photos of our process.
