Succulents

Monday, June 24, 2013


Succulents are my new obsession.



I was impressed with the great selection at Lowe's! Are cacti succulents? I googled it and got mixed answers.


I picked up two of these small hanging baskets of succulents at Lowe's for about $16 each. It was cheaper than buying each plant separately. I put them in those 2 planters in the background. I got the concrete planters at a yard sale last year for $6 apiece. Great deal!


My mother-in-law gave me some new succulents from her garden - her plants are beautiful!! I added these around the outside of the planters.


I shared an Instagram of the small dish on my table.


The second planter:


My mom came over to help me plant them (Dad helped too!). She did most of the planting. I don't like dirt on my hands. 


Do you have any succulents growing??

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on InstagramPinterest, and Facebook!

  1. Good plants look great. I have such a hard time keeping plants alive I have no green thumb.

  2. Wow, I have never planted any but after seeing your post, I may have to give it a try. Are they easy to keep alive? Would love to know more. :)

    1. I'm learning as I go, so I don't know how easy there are to care for :) I do know that I'll have to take them inside during the winter. Hope you plant some!

  3. My mother also has an obsession with succulents. Mine are just lined up on my window sill in the kitchen but I would love to do one of those framed boxes full of succulents, they are so cool.

  6. I do not have any now, but growing up we had a couple. They remind me of living in California :)

  7. Sounds like you're having fun in the garden. :) I don't have any succulents anymore - have had over the years, but I'm not prolific with them. I really need to get into my balcony hanging planters and pull out the old, dead lavendar from last summer...

  9. Emily, nice plants. I like succulents. One of my Grandmothers always had hens and chickens; I would love to have some of those. Right now I have a Christmas cactus - it is still young so I don't know if it will bloom this Christmas.
    I have better luck with African violets. For some reason I can grow them when I can't get anything else to grow. They sit in the kitchen window where they can soak up the morning sun and make me smile.
    Keep us posted on the cacti!
