Succulents are still very trendy, and in my opinion, that’s a great thing. You see, I have somewhat of a black thumb when it comes to gardening. I can’t keep plants alive… well, most of them, that is, except those darling little succulents. And if you’re looking for some creative ways to plant succulents, you’ve come to the right place. As it turns out, you can plant these hardy things just about anywhere!
