We’ve just spotted this wonderful vertical garden by Megan Andersen Read in California: A succulent wall-mounted garden in a box. How cute?

DECO TIP If you can’t construct your own box, use any old discarded drawers and mount it against a wooden surface. (It’s easier to hang, but also looks great!)

See our post on creating your own succulent stand for more inspiration and to see where you can buy your succulents in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.
