DIY: How to Plant a Succulent Garden Video Tutorial + a $100 Home Depot Giveaway!

how to plant a succulent garden /
Recently, I partnered with Home Depot to co-host a Pinterest Inspired Do-It-Herself Workshop all about Succulent Container Gardens. The big event was last Thursday, we had a crowd y’all, it was so much fun. Thanks to everyone that came out, it was so great to meet you in person. Although I have always loved vegetable gardening this was my first Succulent Garden lesson. Basically, Succulents are very hardy plants that require very little upkeep and minimal watering. Yes, my kind of plant! There are many different varieties with the most popular being cacti and aloe plants. During the workshop we learned step-by-step how to plant a Succulent Garden I couldn’t wait to plant my own.

Here are just a couple of pics from the Do-It-Herself Workshop.  Home Depot even gave away a gas grill and the containers we made during the workshop!  The store manager presented me with a hand painted Home Depot apron.  It was such a kind gesture, and the apron was painted beautifully.


My kids had baseball and softball games all weekend, so we didn’t make it to Home Depot to pick up our supplies until Sunday afternoon. It was raining like crazy, and I don’t mean just a little bit.  There were flood watches everywhere, first time I’ve ever picked out planters in the garden department under an umbrella.  Otherwise, I was planning on filming what I was buying but we were a wet mess.

Favorite succulents

The kids helped me pick out their favorite Succulents, after looking at every single plant several times over (no exaggeration y’all it took forever). Love these sweet little hands.  If it would have been up to them, we would have bought every single one!

Succulent Supplies

Below I have included a list of supplies you’ll need to create a Succulent Garden.  We bought a beautiful large blue planter to use as a centerpiece on the table on our screened in porch.  Then, a smaller planter for the kids bathroom.
