Succulent pot

Last weekend was too wet to be out in the garden, so I created a succulent pot to sit on my garden table. I potted up four succulent plants in a mixture of potting compost, gravel and Vermiculite to ensure sharp drainage. They hate to have wet roots. Then I dressed it with more gravel to prevent the leaves getting wet and to set off the grey-green foliage.

It can remain outside until the cold weather sets in, but then it will need frost protection until next spring. Succulents are having a 'moment' according to the gardening journals!
