Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum) are one of the easiest succulents to grow in unconventional planters since they are both small and require little maintenance. The containers are all recycled household items of which the largest is the the old iron wheel shown above. I came across these ideas in an article by Carlene on her Organized Clutter website.
One of my favorite little succulents is the sempervivum, houseleek, or hen and chicks.
They are hardy little perennial succulents that grow in almost anything that can hold at least a small amount of dirt. Here are 12 ways that I have used hen and chicks in my gardens:1. In barnacles in a terra cotta pot of New Guinea Impatiens.
2. In a vintage muffin tin.3. In funnels.4. In iron wheels.
