Small Succulent Garden (For Your Sweetie)

One thing that I am realizing more and more is that it is not worth spending tons of money on Valentine's Day. That does not mean you shouldn't give gifts ;) I like the idea of giving a little living gift. A small garden of easy-to-care-for succulents is just the ticket. It requires *some* money and thought which makes for a lovely present.


  • 1 smallish planter (this one is vintage from the flea market) 
  • selection of  5-6 small succulents who have similar needs 
  • cactus/ succulent potting soil 
  • small rocks for drainage 
  • quartz crystals (optional!) 
1. Begin with the rocks at the very bottom of your planter and then add dirt.
2. Arrange the succulents in an attractive way and then dig small holes for them.
3. cover with dirt to ensure they are properly buried.
4. Water and add crystals :)
