Q.Bird bath succulent garden

Zone 01603 | Jewel8185 added on June 23, 2019 | Answered

I received a birdbath succulent garden for my birthday last week. I love it. I live in Massachusetts, when the weather get cold should I just bring it in my house or put it in the cellar with a grow light. I love my plants but I did not have any succulents until now. Please give me advice on what to do when fall comes. Jabol1008@yahoo.com

Thank you,

Yes, actually, that will be the best course of action. I see that most of those succulents are not hardy in your area.

I also see a type of jade that will not be as tolerant of the dry condition as the other succulents. They do thrive in dry climates, but will want just a little more water than other succulents. You will have to balance the conditions to keep them all happy. Still, generally speaking, dry is better than wet in this case.
