Sweet Succulents
The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer and Spring is in full swing here at Circle Creek Home. We wanted to share with you our obsession with sedum. Not only is sedum prolific it's super easy to grow and multiplies like crazy.
The sedum wreath above has been hanging on our wood shed for many years and continues to grow and change. The trick to keeping a sedum wreath looking great is laying it on the ground when it rains to keep it moist and hanging it back up when the sun comes out.

The best soil to grow sedum in is a mixture of one part sand to two parts planting soil. If you're planting in a wire basket, line the basket with a layer of moss, fill with your soil mixture and begin planting. We like to pack it full of a variety of sedum, they compete for space which makes them grow extra large. 

Sedum does well planted in a tall planter, it drips down the sides.

The beauty of sedum is if you forget about it for a week or two, not to worry it doesn't need much water and is very easy to care for. They like lots of sun and a good draining pot.

Beautiful sitting on one of our Vintage Style Step Stools.

Loving this idea, a pot of sedum sitting under our wire table.

After a day of planting you need some of our Beeswax Skin Salve. Leave a comment telling us what you love to fill your pots with. We'll pick a random winner on May 5, 2014 and send you one of our Beeswax Skin Salves.

Enjoy the season, J and B

You're both such an inspiration! I love everything. I like planting lobelia. The different shades of blue are so pretty. :)
