Succulent Plants
Q.

Should I bring my succulents in for the winter

Zone Washington, Illinois | mrsnep2 added on September 23, 2014 | Answered

I have planted succulents in a part of my garden that is basically sand and very dry. They have done very well, but now I think I should bring them inside for the winter. How should I do this and where should I put them in my house?

Yes, you will have to bring them indoors. They can't take temps lower than 32F; many can't go below 50F. You can try digging them and transplanting to pots, or taking cuttings and starting all the plants again from them.
