The Original Succulent Gardener

4/07/2010

There is no denying the hot trend is Succulents…and another hot trend is vertical gardening….making the succulents put on a wall thing like the most-uber-hottest-trend ever.

I think of Flora Grubb as the one who made the trend huge….but as I stumbled around this morning, I was interested to learn that way back in 1984, Succulent Gardens in Castroville, California were making framed wall succulent art.  Really? Wow, more than 25 years of making and growing succulents pictures and it’s just now the big thing.  That is an impressive testament to sticking with what you love and being an expert in your field.  Robin Stockwell (the owner of Succulent Gardens) has my utter admiration.

Succulents in a Rusty Hub Cap — I think makes a pretty terrific table centerpiece….

These images all come from another newly discovered (at least by me) blog. Far Out Flora is a fun site written by Matti and Megan in San Francisco — these terrific images are from a trip they took to Succulent Gardens — but their site has all sorts of other fun stuff like visits to other cool west coast nurseries, and tales of their own garden adventures.

You can get your own framed succulent garden kit through Succulent Gardens mailed to you for a pretty reasonable price (around a $100 – depending on size).   They also offer wreaths, individual plants.

    Robin Stockwell rocks! I encourage anyone traveling between Santa Cruz and Monterey to stop by for a visit.

  2. I make road trips to buy from Robin any time I can convince a client to let me go for it with succulents! (saves lots of $$, even factoring gas…) Last time I was there he was opening it up to retail as well. Well worth the drive!
