    hello all

    i am successfully growing, parsley, horehound, scullcap, thyme and sage under the canopy of a large fir tree.
    succulants prefer an acid soil from what i have read. The area gets half day sun.
    I wish to transplant some succulants

    does anyone have experience with succulants in this kind of environment

    thanks for your time

    What kind of succulents? There are some that don't require full-sun, but they tend to grow in sunnier environments than we have locally--so for us, they end up doing quite well in full sun (whereas ones that grow in full sun in the wild can be challenging).
