Spruce up your garden with spray paint

Spruce up your garden with spray paint

One of the way’s I’ve added more color and interest to my window well garden is by using spray paint. On my post here I showed some wire fences I got in the dollar bins at Target. While I liked how they looked I thought they would be a little too dark for the window… Continue Reading

Succulent Leaf Cuttings Update

Succulent Leaf Cuttings Update

A while back I posted an update on how my succulent leaf propagation was going. I decided they are big enough that it is time for another update! As I mentioned in my original post on succulent propagation, there is always some loss. Each time I’ve posted and update I’ve had some losses (I don’t… Continue Reading

Aeonium Zwartkop Cutting

Aeonium Zwartkop Cutting

A while ago I took a cutting of my Aeonium Zwartkop. It had been growing fine but wasn’t producing any new shoots. As it is one of my favorite succulents I had a hard time taking the cutting. At the same time I was confident that if I did take a cutting I would have… Continue Reading

Succulent Cuttings Planter

Succulent Cuttings Planter

I have so many succulent cuttings that I was having a hard time finding enough space for them to start growing, so I built this Succulent Cuttings Planter out of PVC pipes. It has worked pretty well, although I think a slightly larger pipe would have been better. The nice thing is that once the… Continue Reading

The window well receives about 5-6 hours of full sun during the… Continue Reading

That said, it really looks much nicer than just an empty window well! Things are growing away just nicely. I have had a few problems with a few plants… Continue Reading

Remember last week’s post about succulents where I linked to a post on aging a tin can? This may seem a little odd, but today’s post is the opposite: how to remove rust from metal. About 20 minutes away from my house is a cute junk store called Star Mill. It is an old mill… Continue Reading

Make a Living Frame with Succulents

Make a Living Frame with Succulents

Remember those succulent cuttings I showed you last week? Well, here is what I did with them! I decided to create a living frame. It ended up being a lot more work than I thought, but in the end it was worth it. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Continue Reading

The succulent cuttings have grown!

The succulent cuttings have grown!

I wanted to show you how much the succulent cuttings I started just two weeks ago have grown! I’m super excited they grew so quickly. They took longer the first time and I’m thinking it was because it was colder, but that is just a guess. These I will be keeping in for a few… Continue Reading
