Last summer I fell in love with the succulent-filled strawberry pots at my friend Bev’s garden.
Well, I pretty much fell in love with her entire garden, but that’s another post for another day.
I kind of haven’t been able to stop thinking about those strawberry pots all winter, though.
I want one, plain and simple. Hens, chicks, sedums, and succulents in general were never really on my radar until I saw them at Bev’s garden last year. Her succulent rock garden is incredible. These photos were taken last summer:
Amazing. And a little daunting to me. The strawberry pot route is probably more my speed right now.
Here’s another one of hers from last summer:
Unfortunately, strawberry pots are proving to be a little hard to find.
I’ve looked all over online, and I’ve tried freecycle and craigslist – all without too much luck. I’ve asked some nurseries and several farmers market stands that sell plants. None! What’s up?
No one is giving any away, that’s for sure. The few I’ve found are expensive…do they just cost that much?
White Flower Farm has one that is 14″ tall…for (gulp)$65. A few other places have them, but they are “mini” pots – 10″ tall or smaller, and I’d like something a tad bigger if possible.
I’ve seen a few on Amazon that are plastic, but I want terracotta. They also have some ceramic types…for $420. ???
So the search continues…if anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
Maybe one day I’ll get one. In the meantime, I plan to plant make a little rock/succulent garden in a terracotta dish – just a large pot saucer. I definitely want to have these plants be part of my garden this year!
