d*s sundays in the garden *


it's a lovely day here in brooklyn so garden talk has special significance today. i'm cultivating a little team of succulents in our home, so i thought it might be fun to give a nod to my current favorites: cacti. now, if you're like me and are more of a black than a green thumb, cacti can be right up your alley. i used to think pricky and dry when i heard the word cactus until i was introduced to the world of succulents- colorful, plump and far from dry, these guys are perfect for the modern home. succulents are really easy to care for and have such a nice clean profile that looks lovely in a sleek, modern planter. the photo above are some of mine from home (all the planters are from sprout home and under $32). so if you're looking to cultivate a city garden that doesn't require a lot of time, consider succulents! you grow girl has a great cacti resource page and this site will let you order them if you don't have a good garden center at home! and as always, here are some fun garden finds and links for the week:


[cacti in a can, $12 at rare device. what could be more fun?]


[show your garden pride with these fun garden buttons at you grow girl. 4 for $5 right here.]


[fun paper lanterns for outdoor parties. $6.95 each at cb2]

My echeveria is blooming! I love succulents. (I love cacti, too, but they always die on me.)

I love the pots you used, but I noticed that they don't have drain holes. Succulents need to drain, it will rot the roots if they sit in overly wet soil. I have killed many a jade plant this way. Maybe try putting stones in the pots and then the soil to aid in draining. Happy gardening!
