Create a desert garden

Cacti though prickly are appealing to the eye especially when they are combined together wonderfully in a pot. Some call such arrangement a desert garden ;-)

I felt so thrilled and satisfied after making mine! Read on to find out how you too can do one yourself.

There are myriads of attractive miniature cacti and succulents that are sold at the nurseries in tiny pots. Spend some time to choose and combine them together to get the arrangement that you like best.

This article, which I contributed to the New Straits Times some time ago, has the tips to help you get the right arrangement while the diagram below shows how you can plant a desert in a pot :-)

Have fun mixing and matching succulents together!
