This Is How Martha Stewart Does Succulents

While we were all drinking rosé and toasting to the long weekend, Martha Stewart was doing something far more wholesome: gardening. The home and cooking icon spent Memorial Day planting the terrace gardens at her house in Maine, which she says is an annual tradition with close friends. "It's quite an undertaking, but I always enjoy the time, especially with the group that accompanies me from year to year. As soon as I get there, I design the layout of where things should go, and then we all get to work."

Stewart recently shared personal photographs of the garden on her blog, Martha Up Close and Personal, and shared details about the plants and urns she's opted for this year. Take a look at her gorgeous Maine garden and find out more about the seven plants she's handpicked for the space.
