  1. Lovely to see spring is springing! It’s so worthwhile sowing a few seeds later in the season for overwintering, a lesson I’ve recently learned. I’d love to know how to propagate succulents, yours look really healthy and I’m never sure that I’m doing it right! Any chance of a post on this? 🙂

    • I’m a recent convert to autumn seed sowing too, it’s good to have a bit of a head start with a few plants each spring. I’m still very much a novice on succulent cuttings, lots of trial and error at the moment with some things working better than others! Will try and put together some thoughts on what seems to work soon..
