Hi, Friends. These past five days have been flying by fast and furious! I was super busy filling all those Etsy sale orders (thank you so much by the way), my youngest son’s girlfriend is in town, we celebrated our Easter a week early on Sunday, and my spring home tour was yesterday (if you missed it, see it HERE). Even tho it’s been busy, it’s the good kind of busy – making memories and having fun! At the end of the post I’ll share a fun video! But, today, I wanted to share a few finds from Walmart (yes, Walmart) and how I used them to put together this fun spring succulent garden!
First, I want to say – Hey Walmart – you’ve been stepping up your game! Thank you!!! Have you seen the fun galvanized items at Walmart? I picked up this fun galvanized tub for $7.94! Have you purchased anything galvanized lately – normally so much more than this!!! They had lots of other galvanized items too – here’s a look.
I’d been shopping for some succulents at the local greenhouses, but seriously, some of these tiny beauties are pricy! So, again, while at Walmart, I decided to take a look in their garden center to see if they had any succulents. Well, guess what? They do – and have an amazing selection with some varieties that I have never seen in a greenhouse! They were priced under $4 each. Here you can see a close up of some of the varieties I chose.
Don’t you just love the one that looks like lettuce! And, there were many more varieties that I didn’t choose. While at Walmart, you can also pick up some sheet moss in the craft aisle. When you plant a succulent garden, start with a layer of gravel or stones, then mix equal parts potting soil and sand. I know I’ve been sharing a lot of Walmart love in this post, but I don’t want to leave out Target. I found the cute cement bunny at Target in the Garden section and he’s the perfect size for this mini spring succulent garden and I can use it outside later this summer!
Here’s a look at the entire vignette in my dining room.
