I was inspired by a post of Debra Lee Baldwin on these beautiful decorated succulent pumpkins! Laura Eubanks at Design4Serenity.com is designing and putting together these wonderful living pumpkins. She is an award winning succulent designer from Southern California. She is making these beautiful pumpkins for people in her area to buy. It would really be impossible for these to be shipped. She is an excellent designer and even has Christmas ones ready for the holidays!
This is pumpkin number two. To take care of these all you have to do is spritz the plants with water once a week. They can come in the house for about a week but should stay outside on your porch in the shade the rest of the time as long as it is not freezing. With proper care these can last up to a year. When the pumpkin starts to rot just scrape the succulents off the top with a spatula and plant in the ground. Throw away the rest of the pumpkin.
I am hoping to sell these in my area. If anyone in my area of Sacramento, CA is interested please leave me a comment. Hopefully I can find a supply of these beautiful pumpkins so I can make more.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I am still working on part two of my Huntington Gardens Greenhouse post. I should be done with it soon.
It's Another Beautiful Day!
