How to Make a Living Table Centrepiece


Bring nature to your table with this succulent centrepiece! The succulents used are called Houseleeks (otherwise known as Hen and chicks). The variety forms small rosette crowns in green, burgundy or both, too small for the garden but perfect for pots, or in this example, a table centrepiece!


What you will need 
Large rectangle tray (suitable for drilling)
Succulent potting mix
Houseleeks (Sempervivum sp.)

How to
1. Select a tray that will suit your outdoor table and mark out drainage holes to be drilled. Use an electric drill to make the drainage holes.
2. Fill with a succulent potting mix and a selection of very small succulents. We chose houseleeks (Sempervivum) due to their size and the fact they clump into a living mat.
