I thought I’d share a quick and easy DIY tutorial today that will perk up your patio without a lot of work.
I have received several questions about potting succulents since I shared my succulent teacher gift a few months ago. It seems like peeps are a little freaked out by succulents for some reason or another. But please don’t be!
Succulents can be the easiest plants if you know a few simple basics.

Now back to the post…
That wasn’t so hard, was it? Now let’s get to the fun part, planting.
Place a layer of gravel in the container of your choice.
I’m using an old card file box and a couple other vintage treasures for mine.
Spread some succulent soil over the gravel.
Plant your succulent in the container, then fill in around it with more potting soil.
Give it a good drink of water and you’re done.
No joke. It’s that easy.
Here’s what mine looked like once they were all planted.
I’ve gotta tell you, I’m a little partial to the angel food cake pan planter. Must be the baker in me. I took these potted treasures over to Aspen Grove Rustics on Main Street in Heber City over the weekend. They are gorgeous statement planters and are sure to pretty up any garden party! If you are local, stop by and snap one up before they are gone!
Are you are feeling a little less nervous about succulents now? I hope so! They really are so easy! With so many different varieties to choose from, you can create anything you can imagine.
Just remember that little tip about them hating wet feet and you’re golden, Ponyboy.
