Greenhouse, Nursery & Garden Center

Big Brook Greenhouse is also pleased to offer an extensive line of hardy succulents. Sedums, Sempervivums and Jovibarbas are some of the many alpine plants we grow and test for hardiness in our northern zone 3 region. All of our plants are hardy zones 3-9 unless otherwise labeled. Once the succulents are established in the garden there is no need for winter covering. An area with sunlight and good draining soil are the main requirements for a successful garden.

Big Brook Greenhouse in Cable, Wisconsin Our topiary garden artwork and living succulent wreaths are tied by hand using our hardy succulents and planted here at our nursery in Northwest Wisconsin. We use the wonderful Wisconsin sphagnum peat moss harvested right here on our property. Careful sculpting and tying of the moss gives our succulent topiaries a cute personality.

The shipping season for succulents begins in March - weather permitting - and continues through November. SUCCULENT TURTLES and LIVING WREATHS make great gifts for any occasion. We also offer gift basekets of succulents and gift certificates which are a great ways to start succulent gardening.
