Decorative and Fun Ideas
Evergreen alpines and other drought-tolerant plants are ideal for table displays. You can also try low-growing herbs, such as thyme, or for a more seasonal design, plant bulbs and spring flowers. For the best overall effect, use containers that complement your garden furniture and tableware.
Cup and Saucer Centerpiece
Use a cup and saucer, and a milk pitcher, topped with pots of mind-your-own-business (Soleirolia soleirolii) to make this fun centerpiece.
Garden succulents, including houseleeks, need little soil and water to thrive, and come in a range of colors and forms. Plant them in a shallow tray for a textured design.
