Succulent Tower


Use a set of three low bowls, each a little larger than the next and fill them with a free-draining cactus and succulent mix. Plant out the rosette-forming succulents, such as Echeverias and Sempervivums, around the rim of each tier. It is best to use foliage contrasts on each different level. It is also preferable to plant them out in their final location as they may be quite heavy!

For succulents, full sun is best and watering only needs to be performed weekly in the hotter months, or fortnightly in the cooler months. They will appreciate a seaweed solution also.
