Like a lot of our friends, we live in one of the windy areas of San Francisco. And yes, there is a huge wind difference in certain neighborhoods (does it EVER get windy in the Mission!?). Because of how windy it always is, we've constantly had a difficult time with keeping alive the plants we put in our flowerbox... until we tried succulents.
We don't claim to have a green thumb but we're certainly trying. And so far our succulents are handling the wind just lovely. So, is it true? Are succulents are best bet? Let us know!
