DIY Succulent Garden

I have always wanted a clay pot full of succulents to adorn my kitchen table. This spring I decided it was time to make one! It was really easy and I can’t wait to display it in our new home this coming August. There is no right or wrong way to create a garden of succulents. I found some lovely small cactus plants that I incorporated in to mine, these particular cacti have some color, which I love. All you need is a pot of some sort, a bag of potting soil and enough succulents to fill it! I also took rocks and small pebbles from the yard to fill in around the succulents once they were planted…this provided a little more texture and security to plants as their roots take hold. Enjoy!









I have to give a shout out to Baublebar and Anthropologie for these lovely earrings I am wearing!

Have you tried potting succulents before? What sort of spring gardening are you doing?

      Thanks Natalie! I appreciate you stopping by and saying hello, and your kind comments. I haven’t tried succulents in a water crystal rose bowl, sounds pretty though πŸ™‚ (for the time they lasted) hehe. I am not an expert at keeping plants alive. *crossing my fingers on this one*

    I just planted lavender, cucumbers, spinach, lettuce, peppers, broccoli and sunflowers over the weekend. Can’t wait to see what actually grows. I’m not a green thumb…you might have to teach me how it’s done. Your pot looks great!
