Sedum in old solar light

jennypat Zone 3b NW MN(Zone 3b NW MN)April 13, 2011

I saw a picture sometime in the last month in a magazine, of some sedum varieties planted in an old solar light fixture. NOW that I want to look at it again, I can't find it! I know I have the magazine here someplace, but am not sure which one. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I have an antique plant stand that has 11 arms on it, I usually put clay pots of geraniums and such on it. But it is a pain to keep watered. It hit me last night that I could do some of the clay bases, filled with varieties of succulents on it this year. But I wanted to look at that picture again!

possibly garden design magazine? I recall they did an issue on cacti and sedums in their previous issue but I don't recall seeing an old solar light fixture.

Nope, not that one.....the only ones I have here are Garden Gate, and Northern Gardening. I have looked through both of them, and can't find it! I am almost positive it was in one of them, but maybe my brain is playing tricks and it was an on-line image.

Fine Gardening magazine then? They often have contests on best and unusual container gardening.

Jenny, I'm not sure if this is the one or not. This winter as a project I actually went through tons of my old (and some new) garden magazines and took pictures of the pictures I liked and put them in albums in Picasa. I took this one because it looked like such a great idea! Looks like it might be from Garden Gate but I have no idea what issue.
