Video: Screaming for Succulents

My name is Stacy and I’m addicted to succulents. Especially now that I’ve discovered the joy of nestling them into some unexpected container. I was at the Goodwill the other day, saw this sage green beauty of a metal caddy and heard it scream at me, “Plant some succulents in here!”

So today, I’m coming at you with a simple tutorial so you can plant a succulent garden too. I’ll show you how to separate and plant “Hens and chicks” and will give you some tips to get your little succulent garden off to a good start! It’s easy and adorable and I think you should make one.

I should warn you though that this project can be deceiving. You might buy a four dollar container and end up with a container worth over $50 once you invest in soil and plants. If you keep on top of it though, so those succulents establish themselves real well, those perennials will keep you smiling for seasons on end. Especially if you put them near your front door where they can greet you.

What creative things do you do with succulents on your patio or in your garden? I’d love to hear your ideas and see your creations. Then again…that might only fuel my addiction.

Think someone else might enjoy these video tutorials? Share the love and pass ’em on!
