The perfect gloomy day or weekend activity in Austin? A visit to East Austin Succulents with friends, of course! I'd heard great things about this little succulent farm located a few minutes east of I-35, and my first trip didn't disappoint.
Let me be the first to say it: East Austin Succulents is, in fact, just as cool as you hear. Not only do they have a full outdoor garden of succulents, but they also have an indoor greenhouse with rows upon rows of the little guys. Pricing generally follows these lines:
2" pots are $2.50 // 4" pots are $5.00 // 6" pots are $10.00
A few special kinds of succulents or pots with multiple different succulents planted run a bit more expensive, but are marked separately and easy to pick out. They also offer vases and rocks you can purchase separately or have them plant for an additional fee of $3-5. Overall, it's pretty cheap and affordable (which makes it a great place to pick up gifts.)
My favorite section is actually outside of the succulent tent in the back right corner. There you'll find tons of tera cotta and stone pots, plates, and holders. I love buying these and painting them for my friends!
If you're a succulent lover like me and my friends, you'll definitely love EAC!
