A Living Christmas Tree

It is difficult to believe that Christmas is one week away.  I still have a bit of  gift shopping to do and of course grocery shopping. We always host Christmas at our house.  This week I wanted to share with you a living Christmas tree that I created this week for HGTV Garden.


I took a trip over to the garden center and found some succulents on the clearance table.  With a few small pots of hens and chicks, a walk in the woods to gather moss and by recycling a flower pot- I was able to create a lovely living tree for indoors and out.  Overtime the succulents will fill in all the vacant spaces.  Click here to create one of these sweet trees for your home.

A “hen” is ready to plant.
