Create a stunning display of succulents in your garden

Posted on June 23, 2022 at 4:01 pm

Succulents can add a wonderful touch of the tropical to any garden whether in pots or rockeries and are very easy to grow and care for. They can be grown as an indoor plant or as an outdoor plant on a sunny patio.

Choosing the right pot for your succulents will depend on the size of the plant and whether you want just one specimen plant in the pot or whether you want a few plants that complement each other in one shallow pot. Once planted, it is good to top the soil with fine gravel as this will make an impressive display and show off the succulent more effectively.

Succulents come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes and can create a wonderful display on a rockery in the garden. They need very little maintenance and can survive in dry conditions with very little water. These hardy plants can even be planted to grow on gravel paths where they spread rapidly to create a carpet of colour.

Particular varieties to look out for are the deeply coloured Semponium “Destiny” which won plant of the year at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and Houseleeks with their brightly coloured rosettes which change colour with the seasons.
