Create Succulent Centrepieces

A special succulent centrepiece for your table need not break the budget. It is as easy as turning to your garden or local nursery and letting your imagination run wild

Create Succulent Centrepieces

Burgundy Aeonium ‘Zwartkop’ makes a structural statement

Succulents are resilient and tough. You can take them from a pot, use them for a special purpose and then return them to their original pot. 

Just about any container can be used to create a centrepiece, from a glass bowl to a novelty planter. 

This teacup had a drainage hole so we planted an aeonium as a feature, adding lower-growing bright-green succulents around the base.  

For a seasonal centrepiece, arrange succulent cuttings and divisions around a candle, then after Christmas, plant them in a permanent spot.

Try a vase, fishbowl, large shell or even a piece of old driftwood. Secure the succulents in pebbles or gravel and spray lightly with water.
