Cactus & Succulents


A popular sun-loving plant for every home.
Succulents and cactus come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. With all these varieties, they have one thing in common?they love a lot of light. Placing them in the sunniest spot in your home is best. Water them when dried out, and you’ll have a happy plant. Their ease of maintenance is due to their love of hot and dry climates.

Care Requirements


Cactus and succulents thrive in bright direct light but have some ability to handle bright indirect light. Place in a bright sunny window and watch them grow! 


Depending on the size of the cactus or succulent, watering every 2-3 weeks, allowing the soil to dry completely between watering is ideal. When watering, be sure to soak them until water drains out of the pot. 


Cactus and succulents grow best in a well-draining succulent mix. It’s important that water can drain quickly to reduce standing water, which is bad for them. 
We suggest Fertilome Succulent Mix


Fertilizing cactus and succulents in the growing season helps give them that little extra boost to grow bigger and faster. 
We suggest Espoma Cactus! Plant Food


The optimum temperature range for cactus and succulents is 65-90° F. It’s best not to let it go below 60° F. 


Cactus and succulents love humidity, so really any level of humidity is perfect!


On most occasions, cactus and succulents are not toxic to cats and dogs. Some cacti do, however, have spiky needles, which can cause harm.

Care Requirements


Hydrangeas do well in partially shaded areas like under a large tree or on the side of a house. They like to receive sun in the morning, and the partial shade is in the heat of the afternoon. In Colorado, too much full sun will cause them to get sunburned.


Hydrangea shrubs need to have well-draining soils that is rich in organic matter. Most Colorado soils will benefit from the addition of peat moss and compost that helps retain moisture. The pH determines the colors of the blooms. Acidic soil will give you blue flowers, and alkaline soil gives you pink flowers.  


If hydrangea shrubs are given too much high-nitrogen fertilizer, they may grow full and lush, but there will be fewer flowers. If the soil is rich, fertilizer is not needed. Otherwise, a light application in March or April may be warranted.


Make sure to water your hydrangea shrubs regularly. Those big blooms require a lot of water to stay lush and full. About one inch of water throughout the week is ideal. If they receive more sun give them at least two inches during the hotter summer days.

Our Advice

  • Allium flowers need full sun for the best blooms. 
  • Plant allium bulbs when temperature is consistently in the low 60’s or lower. 
  • Allium bulbs and flowers enjoy having soil that is well-draining and has organic matter. Amend the soil with top soil, compost and organic material. 
  • Fertilize when planting the allium bulbs with either Espoma Organic Bulb-tone or Hi Yield Dutch Bulb Food. Applying fertilizer at least 3″ below bulb will make sure the roots get the most from the fertilizer. 
  • Plant allium bulbs 4 – 6 inches deep with the old roots facing the ground and the pointed end facing up. 
  • Water the planted area immediately after planting but no additional watering in fall or spring is necessary. 
  • Apply a 2 – 3 inch layer of  mulch to the planing area in mid to late fall.
