One of my favourite places in the world is the Natal Midlands. We have a farm in Dargle and our neighbours are the super talented, super cool and slightly eccentric Trickett family. They’re the ones behind the fashion and lifestyle blog ITSWHATIMINTO (check it out here and bookmark it) and they also have green fingers. Their beautiful farm boasts a greenhouse stocked with exotic and indigenous succulents and agaves. On the 27th and 28th of April Saint Verde is having their end of season sale with up to 50% off on a selection of exotic and indigenous succulents. If you’re in the area, take a drive out to the farm, it really is worth a stroll around the nursery and garden. Shop a little and create a living wall feature, a vertical succulent garden or simply add a few to your existing garden.





Here’s an idea:

If you don’t have rolling lawns or garden space, create an indoor teacup succulent garden! Get a bag of mini pebbles, your succulents from Saint Verde and round up pretty teacups from thrift shops and…voila!

    how do you build the “teacup?”
    Do you need any kind of soil?
    I tried this but something must be issuing as they do not seem happy. Thanks.

      I use cactus /succulent soil. I put some rocks on the bottom for drainage as their roots don’t like sitting in water. Then the cactus soil, followed by some pebbles for ground cover once the succulent is planted. Mine seem like they’re doing ok ☺
