Get creative with succulent plants
These waterwise beauties will make a statement in anything from a hanging basket or tin to a pot or wooden box.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a picture-perfect display with succulents. Ann Kerr of The Pink Geranium Nursery, the location for these photographs, and Buck Hemenway of the Calitzdorp Succulent Society offer advice on how to get the best from your succulent plants.
#1 Hanging gardens
According to Ann, fleshy succulents are the perfect candidates for a hanging basket. “They can survive for long periods without water and make a beautiful display,” she says. “The growth habit of many succulents is ideal; even an immature aloe will work. Follow your instincts and go for the plants you love.” Make your own hanging baskets – it’s so simple!
