Love it. The first photo looks like hens and chicks I planted a few years ago. 

 

Unfortunately mine dont look that nice anymore.

I like it! I like succulents and this is a unique idea for planting them!

Re: Wagon Wheel Container Garden

Does anyone know what the plants are in the second wheel?

I love the look of this, but that is a lot of hens & chicks.

@Dusty1   The hens 'n chicks in the first photo and all of the plants in the second photo are succulents.  I love succulents, and that's a nice variety.  The hens 'n chicks photo isn't completely h 'n c.  There's a few other varieties of succulents mixed in with them.

Well, that's one way to contain sedum so they don't spread all over the garden.  But, even in the wheel, they'll spread and eventually the spokes won't even be visible.  It's a nice wheel - think I'd find another use for it.

Re: Wagon Wheel Container Garden

This is a winner for me.  I have succulents and would love more.  Using a wagon wheel for a planter is a great idea and if someone would plant for me, I'm all for it !!!!

@NickNackThank you! I don't know my plants very well.

I did see a "wagon wheel" at Rural King today for $19.98 & I thought of this.

I have a picture of it in my phone from another site, that I had saved.
