Tabletop Garden – After Jurassic

Table Garden After Jurassic 101

This is the second tabletop garden I made – After Jurassic.  It is made of four different types of cacti and succulents, and decorated with many sizes and colors of rocks, seashells, and corallite.

Some friends wondered why do I call this garden “After Jurassic.”  Well… the name comes from the part filled with red rocks, which is supposed to be in the shape of a dinosaur.  But I guess  the sedum burrito, which has covered part of the dinosaur, makes it difficult for people to tell that it is, in fact, a dinosaur, but not a chicken 😆

Table Garden After Jurassic 102Almost all gardening books say that every container and pot must have at least one drainage hole.  But let’s face it. sometimes there is a beautiful pot that we just want to use, even if there is no drainage hole.  So, for this table garden, I put a layer of horticultural charcoal at the bottom of the container to improve drainage and help preventing the plants from damping off.
