The grow Guide Episode 10: Succulents

If you have just one plant in your home we’re guessing it’s a succulent since they’re easy to grow for just about any level of gardener. They’ve become hugely popular over the last few years, and this week Dave and Maggie dive deeper into different varieties, watering schedules, blooming and re-potting. Dave debunks the myth that all succulents are low-maintenance (spoiler alert: they still need watering too) and Maggie shares her tips for propagating succulents which will save you loads of money! They even chat about succulents that thrive outside year-round in Manitoba’s chilly weather. This week the giveaways are back too and one lucky winner will get not one but five succulents! Yes, five!

Welcome to the brand new Gardens Manitoba website. Much like how we clean our garden spaces in the fall, we figured our online garden could use a tidy as well. Some pages have gone into the compost pile, others have been re-potted, some are bulbs which will flower later.

Plant analogies aside, we still have some exciting things to come for our site as we seek to have more interaction with our members, the public and vendor supporters. In that vein, look for an update about our legacy greenhouse project at CMU, an announcement of a new media initiative very soon, and at least a couple of more we can't quite even mention yet.

This is all a part of our goal to make Gardens Manitoba a community and THE destination for all things northern and short-season gardening.

Let us know how we are doing, feedback is always welcome email us at
