About this Class

Cacti and succulents are dryland gems that are not reserved to the arid American Southwest. Get up close and personal with a wide range of regionally hardy cacti and succulents. Some may be familiar to local gardeners while others, including colorful hardy Opuntia and barrel cacti, might come as a surprise. Jessie Keith has been growing these waterwise plants in her Wilmington, Delaware garden for years and shares her tips and tricks for getting these xeric plants to survive our winters and thrive in our summers. Keith demonstrates trough planting before students create their own hardy succulent trough gardens.

All supplies and materials provided.
