The Laguna Beach Garden Club will be passing out free cuttings of succulents at the Sawdust Festival this Saturday. They ask members for cuttings from their gardens and I am more than happy to participate. Cutting back succulents is good for them as they have a tendency to get a bit leggy during the growing months if not trimmed. Succulents can be cut and sit for days without being planted, it is actually preferred that they dry out a little before being planted to avoid rot. I have about twenty pounds from my SJC garden and I will be heading over to the Laguna garden to gather some more. They are such easy plants to share!
