Garden of Eden…Part II Succulent Love

Succulents are an easy grow & good lookers. They are one of my favorite outside plants…you can make them unique by adding small stones, colored rock, sand etc to cover soil. You can also add a unique piece of wood, piece of slate, special rock you picked up etc.
Below are a few ideas on how to display. For the old window frame…..I planted succulent seeds in a tray over top of burlap & dirt, once they had all come up I put plastic netting in a window pane, flipped the rectangle of succulents in pane, placed a board over succulents, stapled netting to back of board to hold everything together then nailed the board to back of window.
The pallet succulent garden I had seen on Pinterest…my Toy Boy made the pallet more stable and put a solid wood back on it. I filled with dirt and planted succulents in the 2 openings, leaving it flat for a couple of weeks to let plants settle in so that when tipped up they don’t all fall out. I planted Portulaca on the top once in place for color and I stained the boards to give a more finished look.
