A quirky container made from an old car wheel, planted with succulents.

Low growing, drought tolerant succulents come in many shades, sizes and forms. They thrive and look fantastic in gravel or pebble mulch too but some are tender and won’t survive many a hard winter frost. Planting them in containers makes it possible to have them outside for the spring, summer and autumn and you can overwinter them indoors. A rusty metal container makes a wonderful contrast to the pale blues, greens and silvers of succulents and creates the feeling that they have just appeared there naturally.
