A week for gardening ideas

It’s Spring! and time for cleaning out, re-organising, re-vamping and generally just getting inspired! Many of my succulents are now starting to outgrow their pots and the time has come for me to start a new succulent garden (if I can find a sunny enough spot!), so I scoured the internet for some ideas.

My Echeveria harmsii have been growing beautifully in their respective pots and getting a bit pot-bound, so this seems like a lovely idea to put them in the garden – I can already see them thriving and spreading!

Or perhaps some of them can go into bigger, more exciting pots.


A re-vamp of my garden path or a new path, surrounded by succulents, is also in order!
A nice idea for transplanting my Aloe cooperi (Grass Aloe) amongst some rocks (the pic is Aloe verecunda)
I’ve got some Echinopsis cacti in the garden that are not looking too well after the winter (they don’t like frost) so I’ll get a nice pot for them where I can keep them on the patio and tend to them until they’re in perfect condition again.
A sunny, north-facing wall will be ideal to display some of my bigger specimens.
Echeverias planted en masse always look good!
A lovely idea for displaying some Echeverias and I DO have a chair similar to this!
My little corner similar to this has succumbed to my girls’ constant scratching, so time to transplant the Echeverias and add new pebbles
This seemed like a lovely idea for against a sunny wall, until I started worrying about all the work of maintaining and watering them!
A beautifully laid out succulent garden! Something to strive for! (Image Willem Van Greunen in ‘MinWater’ group on FaceBook)
I just love palettes! A beautiful idea for a lounge or dining room, except I haven’t got any big windows like this…
The Aloe Farm’s display on their side-walk (you’ll find them on FaceBook)
I apologise that I don’t have links for all the images, but I forgot to copy it and can’t find any of them now! So if you find your picture here, please feel free to contact me! Smile!
So, armed with lots of inspiration, there’s no excuse for my garden not looking beautiful this summer!
