Q.Moving From Zone 10 to 8

Anonymous added on August 11, 2012 | Answered

We are moving from southern California, Zone 10 to Tehachapi, Zone 8. Have many potted cactus and succulents, can they survive there? Most importantly a potted 50+ year old barrel cactus with plantlets, can I plant this in the soil or do I need to keep it inside during the winter? I’ve searched the web and cannot find an answer.

Tehachapi is actually Zone 9 and yes, the cacti and succulents will be fine there. They need to be in well-draining, sandy soil when planted outdoors and should do fine over winter.
