3 Easy Ideas for Flower Boxes
If You Have Limited Time to Garden
What to PlantSucculents thrive on neglect. They love to bask in the sun, and they won't dry out, because their fleshy leaves have a built-in water supply. Choose a visually varied composition of succulents with similar light and moisture requirements. In this box, small purple echevaria rosettes (Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg) echo the shape of their giant green aeonium cousins (Aeonium subplanum). Blue chalksticks (Senecio serpens) and green rattails (Crassula muscosa) create contrast, as does a trailing cape ivy (Senecio macroglossus Variegatus) and a black rose aeonium (Aeonium arboreum Zwartkop).
When to WaterInfrequently. Check the soil every two weeks, and reach for the watering can when the soil is completely dry.
How to MaintainMake sure to use a fast-draining, soilless potting mix designed for succulents and cacti.
