Say it with Succulents

So it’s friday, you haven’t had time to buy Mum a present yet, you have missed the delivery cutoff date for most stores, so what are your options? Most people will instantly think flowers, but how about trying something along those lines that will last a lot longer (and probably cost the same price too!)

Your local nursery is the place to go! What I am thinking is how about making a living bouquet out of succulents! Succulents are the coolest little plants, they come in this huge array of colours, patterns, shapes and sizes. They won’t cost you an arm and a leg, and they are very forgiving for those who do not possess much of a green thumb.

Below are some inspirational pics to display the sort of effects you can achieve with these little winners. All you need to do is choose a container that suits your Mums style and character, and then fill with soil and your selection of succulents. Voila, one living bouquet for Mum!

    These are one of my fav plants. So many to choose from and grouped together they look amazing. Pretty hard to kill too!
