I love a bit of greenery as much as the next person – the problem is, I just can’t keep anything alive. It gets watered too much / not enough, gets too much sun / not enough etc etc. Absolutely nothing to do with forgetting about them for weeks at a time while I enthusiastically try another hobby, before deciding I like plants again. Anyway, succulents are the answer: they don’t need too much water or care and they look quite cool. I got these beauties in their sleek concrete pots from our local garden centre – here if you’re interested – and I really recommend hunting down your local for beautiful bargains. If you want to buy online, there’s lots of choice, but this site seems to be reasonably priced and has lots of choice.
