This morning I took a trip to Home Depot to purchase my plants and supplies needed. There was a huge variety of succulents to choose from. It was hard to pick which ones I wanted.
What You Need:
Cacti and Succulent Potting Mix
How To Make a Succulent Garden Instructions:
1. Place a layer of small rocks on the bottom of your container for drainage.
2. Next, place your potting soil made for cacti and succulents on top of the rocks. Wet the soil until moist.
3. Arrange your cacti and succulents in the soil and fill the rocks on top of them. I found some beautiful flowering succulents at Home Depot which add color to my garden. I used these as the centerpiece with the smaller cacti placed around the edges of the dish. You can also add rocks and other decorative objects to create interest in your container garden. Sit your garden in a sunny spot and water when you feel the soil dry again.
Succulents come in a variety of textures and colors and are easy to grow and maintain.
