Succulents

If little to no tending is your type of gardening, we have the plant for you. Succulents require very little maintenance, as they only need to be watered during growing seasons and when the soil is completely dry. Won't be able to water your plants for a while? No problem. Succulents can tolerate long periods of dryness. In fact, the most common problem with succulents is rot, so be sure to plant them in pots with drainage or rocks in the bottom, and do not overwater.
