Driftwood Planter for Succulents

Drilled out holes in a piece of driftwood can make for a beautiful home for your succulent plants.

A lot of the fun we have found with Succulent plants is finding creative places to grow them. One such location is what I like to think of as Green Planting, or taking something that one might view as dead or junk, and transforming it into something of life and beauty.

To start, simply find a piece of driftwood from any lake, river or ocean shore. (Be sure to check local laws regarding the taking of driftwood first.)

Using an electric drill, and a 3/4″ or bigger drill bit, drill as many holes, at various angles, at least 1″ deep or more, where you would like to plant your succulents. Fill the holes with potting soil, and then use a small screwdriver, or pencil shape to poke a hole into the dirt to easily plant your small succulents in. Water as normal, and watch as that old discarded piece of driftwood takes on a new vibrant life in your garden.
