One month on, and my succulents are growing very well, but still in their little pots. Now I’m caught between planting them in little teacups or a white terrarium I have – clicking around Pinterest for half an hour has done nothing to help my decision making – but I do have lots of little ideas for succulent gifts now!
Succulents are my new favourite plant in the world. I grew up surrounded by them – and hated them – and then developed a huge love of them after taking part in an amazing floral workshop. Obviously then, succulents would become a completely rare and black market item in Hampshire and could I find one any? Nope.
I’m sat here in the Spring sunshine with a tin of nine perfect little plants because unbeknownst to me, my little boys had teamed up with Flowercard to surprise me for my birthday. Instead of flowers [although they have many beautiful flowers on the site] I was gifted nine perfect little succulent plants in a biscuit tin, and they are gorgeous! I had no idea you could send these in the post, and I just love them. I can’t imagine a sweeter gift from my boys – who thought that the Flowercard people were very lovely indeed, especially as they even printed my boys’ names on the tin.
This is a collaboration with Flowercard, thanks to my boys.
