How you helped The Parched Garden become a reality
We are thrilled that everyone who purchases our succulents, knows they are getting exceptional plants worthy of the most discriminating succulent collector.
The Parched Garden CEO
Before I created The Parched Garden, I was an average gardener who was always struggling to keep her plants alive. I was dealing with some major health issues and couldn’t do my normal gardening and other hobbies. I was bummed, so I started looking for a way to combine my love of gardening, with an easy to do hobby.
Then one day it happened. I purchased my first succulent, and learned how easy they were to care for, and how much joy they brought to my home!
I was concerned that it was going to be hard to find interesting succulents. But then I found out about succulents from overseas, and decided to start getting some of these hard to find plants.
To set out to find the most luxurious succulents for new and seasoned collectors in the U.S. It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined. Learning how to import plants was no easy task. Finding reputable cultivators in other countries seemed next to impossible.
It turns out…
The road was more difficult than I imagined. I spent months researching the USDA import process and applying for permits. Then my search for succulent contacts all over the world started! I was able to find several good cultivators and have created lasting friendships with them.
I feared that I wouldn’t be able to find rare and unique succulents that people would find drool-worthy. But I was wrong. I hit the jackpot!
Through it all…
We released our first plants and the response has pure love from everyone who gets a succulent.
There are so many beautiful and unique succulents in the world, and I enjoy finding special ones for my customers! Each succulent is carefully selected and what is pictured is what you get!
