Miniature Fairy Gardens

Create your own miniature garden! We carry a wide assortment of all the accessories you need to create a little garden haven. This one was planted in an old tin antique picnic basket but you can use just about anything that will hold dirt. An old basket, suitcase or even a drawer would make a great container. Add a trellis, chairs, benches, fencing and paving stones. Then for finishing touches: beeskeps, birdhouses, urns, birdbaths, and even little garden tools. Choose plants according to whether you plan to keep it in shade or sun This one features angel vine on the trellis and a fern. In the small urn is a little sprig of hen and chicks which doesn't require much soil. This is a great project to do with kids or grandkids this summer. It also makes a great gift!

That is SOOOOO cute - I think I'm gonna have to try and make one of these. Your place is absolutely beautiful - do wish I was closer so I could come visit in person. But as for now, it is nice stopping by. Have a blessed day! Cathy
