Making some basic 2x4s look old with some paint and stencils, I created my very own vertical garden for planting hens and chicks (succulents). Once the frame fill out I'll have a living work of art! Full details of the project are on my blog Inspired by Charm:

    Hey Micheal so what best place outdoor to place succulent plants? Mostly shade, full sun?

    I do like succulents but not cactus. If it has stickers, I don't like it! We have to many that grown around here without adding more! 😀

    I to have planted them in both sun and shade and they do well in either circumstance. In hot climates they do need more water when in the sun and well drained soil.
