Planting a succulent garden is a fun and easy activity, and I will share with you some ideas on how to start growing succulents in your own garden. As an avid gardener myself I look for any excuse to get outside and do something in the garden. Time though can sometimes be in short supply. This activity is something that can be done quite quickly and with very few materials. It’s also easy enough for young children to join in the fun!
Now, my garden is small so I just have to think a bit more compactly than those with lots of space to play with. Succulents are a great way to add color, variety, and a unique feature to the garden or patio, even in the smallest of spaces. Now let’s get started!
You’ll need to get yourself a small pot with a good drainage hole in the bottom. Succulents don’t like soggy soil, so buy soil that is made specifically for succulents or soil that will offer plenty of drainage.
For a few dollars you can buy yourself a small succulent or if you know someone who is growing succulents already, ask if they will give you a cutting of theirs. Later on when your succulent gets bigger you can make cuttings of your own. This will be a great time saver as well as easy on the pocketbook.
