Succulents come in a huge array of colours and shapes. They are also super hardy and grow happily in all sorts of environments. Our first moss and succulent creation was our gorgeous Chicken Wire, Moss and Succulent Toadstool.

How to Build a Succulent Christmas Tree

We started by lining our cone with moss, and filling the centre with bulb fibre.

We managed to find some succulents at the nursery that had loads of little baby plants. We gently broke the babies off and used a pencil to make a hole to insert them into. These baby plants don’t have much in the way of roots at present, by succulents are tenacious by nature, so we are hopeful they will soon settle in and take root in their new home.

We had a selection of succulents with different colours and leaf shape, so we tried to dot them around in a pleasing arrangement.
