Decorate a tree or shrub with little watering cans brimming with sedums. Given a sunny position, the plants will become covered with tiny, starry yellow flowers in summer.
Time to Complete: 30 minutes
Using an electric drill and metal bit, make several drainage holes in the base of each watering can. Cover the holes with gravel, add the potting soil and water the sedums before planting.
Remove the sedums from their pots and plant them in the watering cans, filling in around them with more potting soil. Water the plants well and tie the watering cans, via their handles, to a tree or shrub using raffia or string.
