Today I finally decided to go to the nursery with this wire bodice I’ve had for few years. She sat in my flower bed naked but nice. I just had a good idea to cover her up with some plants.
I went to Wingard’s Nursey in Lexington because they had a complete potting area and very friendly staff to help with any questions I may have. The first step was to put coconut fiber all around to hold the dirt. I added the cordyline plant as the head topper
Next was time to be creative with plants. I chose succulents and mostly hens&chicks plants because they’re easy to grow and require the least maintenance.
Once the plants were all in, I covered the fiber with spanish moss to complete the look.
This is the finished product of my Diva Chic (named from the hens&chic plants she’s filled with)
Can’t wait to see how she really looks when all the plants begin to really grow..let’s hope her hips don’t spread too much 🙂
