You can create remarkably different looks using nothing but succulents.
In this video, you’ll see how to create two container gardens. One is an elegant, low-growing garden in cool blues. The other is a larger, wilder look in hot Southwestern colors.
Mark Yadon, vice president at Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses, 118 South Forest Rd., Williamsville, tells us about containers, describes why the succulents he has chosen work well together, shows us exactly how to plant the containers and gives us tips on accents to make the container look more attractive. Yadon also supplies tips on maintaining your succulents, covering not just water and light needs, but also how to keep your succulents small or, if you prefer, let them grow large.
Also check out last week’s video, where Yadon introduced us to 10 varieties of succulents and showed us some creative containers.
