Got an old glass bowl collecting dust?

This old trifle bowl had seen its last sponge and a customer popped into our shop in Hornsey hoping that we could give it a new life as a succulent garden.

It was an ideal size and depth for a mix of succulents. At the base we added a layer of sand, followed by a rich compost-sand mix. We avoided the temptation to put in too many plants, they’ll need space to grow.

We finished it off with a layer of volcanic sand and grey slate to create the perfect coffee table centrepiece.

If you’ve got a vessel, bowl or vase that you’d like us to work on, get in touch. We’re happy to advise on plants and the styles we can create.
