Planting Succulents

Large Basket Succulents

I've been planting succulents for years in my garden using lots of different large containers. I love their easy care and texture they add to my garden.

Here are a few containers I planted this year.

My first container is a huge cement basket I purchased over 17 years ago for my garden.

Over the years, I've planted several succulents (Sedums,Echeveria,Sempervivum hens and chicks),this year I added Kalanchoe and 'Zwartkop' aeonium.

It's always a focal point in my garden. I planted succulents at the base of this planter too.

My second Container happens to be a non-working fountain I've had for years.

I got tired of filling it up with water constantly (it leaked) so I turned it into a planter for my succulents.

I planted Echeveria, sedum, Kalanchoe, cluster of sempervivums-hens and chicks,ice plant and trailing dichondra 'silver falls'.

Thanks for letting me share my succulent containers.
