All you succulent lovers, this is the place for you! East Austin Succulents is a fun, funky, succulicious nursery and our partner for the 2018 Austin Garden Bloggers Fling! It’s a must-see nursery stop if you’re planning a sightseeing day in Austin. After all, succulents pack easily in carry-ons and suitcases, and if you’re driving you can take home one of their creatively potted arrangements made out of repurposed cookie tins, melted LP records, old toolboxes, or even a deli meat grinder!
Owner and grower Eric Pedley has a passion for succulents and cacti that’s contagious. He and his team of young growers are focused on cacti and succulents for the home or landscape. “We specialize in making arrangements, as well as having the most diverse selection of retail succulents in the nation.”
I like to go browse for a unique, thrifted pot — Eric hits estate sales and antique stores for unique items that can be turned into planters, plus he stocks all kinds of ready-made pots — and then cruise the greenhouse tables, packed with candy-colored succulents, for the perfect mix of plants.
The nursery also carries an assortment of accent rocks and gravel toppers as well as tiny animal figurines to add a little personality to your planter. So go, have fun making your own succulent creation or pick up one of theirs.
The tagline at East Austin Succulents is:
“Life is short, surround yourself with beauty!”
And this is the place to do it, in lighthearted, thrift-shopped Austin style.
