First off we learnt how to grow new plants from existing ones via leaf and stem cuttings. Most succulents will propagate like this, and all you have to do is cut off a stem or gently remove a leaf, let it sit for a few days to callous over at the end, then place in (stem cuttings) or on (leaf cuttings) some potting mix. It can take a few weeks, but eventually roots will form and you'll have a new plant.
We also learnt how to divide types of succulents that produce 'pups', i.e. new baby plants off the side. This is another easy way to get a whole new plant from an existing one.
We also had a bit of a garden tour and working bee after the workshop. It was brilliant to meet so many new and passionate people. Thanks for coming!
