DIY Herb & Succulent Garden  


Step 1 - Choose your succulent.

Step 2 - Fill the planter about ¾ of the way with good soil. Plant you succulent, leaving room for other plants.

Step 3 - Then choose your herb, such as Sage (which is great for cooking). Add it to the pot.

Step 4 - Add a few more small succulents. Fill in the pot with soil and give your herbs & succulents some space. They’ll grow quickly so don’t over plant.

Step 5 - Give your plant some water. You won’t have to water often. Succulents hold water, so just water with herbs look a little limp or the soil looks dry.
