FALLBROOK – More than 130 people stopped by the Fallbrook Public Utility District on a Saturday morning in November to pick up their free water-saving succulents. They then went home and started planting.
The sturdy, brightly colored succulents are allowing people to transform their landscape, save water, beautify gardens and ease the workload of gardening. Participants received empty flats, then selected an assortment of 3-inch potted succulents.
Each person walked away with about 28 free plants.
"We have taken out thirsty plants in favor of the succulents," said Alan Wadham.
