I had about 11 small cactus and succulents, to bring them in would take up sooo much space this winter so I finally put to use the galvanized low pail I got in a yard sale.. I got some of these from Jimmy and some as gifts from others, so I gathered up my friends to get together this winter and stay warm.........

Diane - that turned out really nicely!
I like the way you put the rocks in, and is that a wee Willy in there standing guard?

I had never put a bunch of them together before I have to admit I had to read up on it,, This pail didn't have a drain holes so I put a layer of horticulture charcol, then a layer of sand, then cactus/ succulent soil and potted on up..

Thanks April and Comfrey!!

That looks great. I love the way you decorated with the rocks. I like group succulents in one pot I think they look better together.
