Make a Spring Succulent Garden

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 Easter a week early on Sunday, and my spring home tour was yesterday (if you missed it, see it HERE).  Even though it’s been busy, it’s the good kind of busy – making memories and having fun!    Today, I want to share a few finds from Walmart (yes, Walmart) and how I used them to put together this fun spring succulent garden!

How to Make a 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 they cost 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 there was 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!
