On another wet dreary day here in central Ontario I finding myself wanting
to get down right dirty.......hands that is....Can't wait to dig in the soil ....
So to my surprise my DIL last Saturday, took me to a Succulent Workshop!
Here at the Mint Floral Co.
I thought oh how exciting...I can get my hands dirty.....
For you gardeners out there you KNOW what I'm talking about...don't you!!
So we arrived for the 11:00 am workshop and were lined up at a table with 12 other
ladies and in front of us we had a wooden box, soil, and one succulent .
That one succulent was the centre of the arrangement. From there we chose other
succulents that would compliment the other.
Inside the box was a plastic tray.
- first we added enough soil to reach the top of the wooden box , making sure we tapped
the box on the table to distribute the soil.
- next came the centre piece.....
- then we continued to add and change and add till we were satisfied with the look we were
trying to achieve.
- some that would eventually cascade over the sides were placed at the corners.
Did you know that succulents are an easy plant to grow?
Some have found them easy outside to grow but when it came to inside their's died.
These little gems like the light and only require watering when the soil becomes dry.
Remember they are a dessert plant!
These are our two containers planted up and ready to watch them flourish and grow.
They will take over the box when mature and the ones on the edges will cascade down.
While we were there I happened to notice these octopus looking plants.
They were kinda grey with a touch of red.
I thought they were a faux plant but to my surprise they were AIR PLANTS!
Well I never!!
I found a keeper and brought it home.
Look closer you'll see it's flowering!
If you are in the area drop by Mint Floral Co. you'll be in for a real treat!
Thanks for following along friends
and have an amazing week!
