- a container
- wire clippers (we used these to trim the wire at the end of our embellishment to just the right height)
- cloth soil keeper- a roll of this can be purchased at any garden supply store
- a cement drill bit
- potting soil
- an embellishment (optional)
3. Cut a square of you cloth soil keeper and place in the bottom of your container. Add some pebbles over the bottom of your cloth.
4. Add in your soil. We used Miracle Grow, it always gives us great results!
5. Add in your tallest succulent. Since this one peeks over the top of all the other ones, it is the "thriller". We used Elephant Bush. It is important to gently break apart the roots before planting each succulent.
6. Add in the succulent you are using to "fill". Climbing Aloe is perfect for this.
7. Your "spill" is next. Seriecio Radicans Glauca is what we used. It looks divine.
8. The last succulent we used is Sedum Robrotinctum cv. Aurora. Our little garden needed a pop of color and this was fabulous.
9. Add in you moss, and an embellishment. The contrast between the green and blue and the rusted metal bee we used is the best choice we could have made.
10. Water. You garden should get a drink once a week, until it dribbles out of the bottom. Over watering will kill you succulents, so really- only one time per week!
