Succulent Success Story in Washington
Don Steele, 91, has only lived on Vashon five months, and he has already grown a small but successful business.
The former nurse manager and ceramic artist’s small succulent gardens — buckets, dishes, baskets and even old Jell-O molds filled with sedums and sempervivums — are now sold at both Thriftway and Blooms & Things, and they are catching customers’ attention.
It turns out that the succulent business is an opportunity for all. Come join us! Just go do it somewhere else; Vashon Island is taken.
