Vintage Junk Succulent Planter Tutorial
A. Look for cheap ($1 or less each) vintage containers to use as planters. Metal is my favorite. Not too big, or it is too heavy to haul around. Not too small, or people won't purchase them. Just right.
C. Put some "junk" in the bottom for drainage. Black walnuts, clay pot pieces, small rocks, leaves and items found in your compost pile.
H. Water each container thoroughly. After this, they generally only need watering once a week. Twice if it is super hot.
I. There might be some bare spots, which need a little interest. This is a great opportunity to raid your junk stash. Last year I used a lot of rusty metal items for filler. This year I'm leaning toward rocks and shells. Other items I have used: broken porcelain doll pieces, game pieces, tiny glass bottles, marbles, ceramic animal or bird figures.
