Miniature Plantscapes

Friday, 22 January 2010

I love this idea for a winter garden.  Midwest Living showcased a feature about "fairy gardens" in the January 2010 issue and I want one.  It's a new take on a terrarium.



First, pick a container.  The magazine has an adorable photo of a basket filled with a small plant arrangement and tiny chairs and potted plants.  (Sorry the photo isn't featured on the magazine's website but I found the cute one below.)  Add soil, select plants such as herbs, accessorize and let your imagination explore the garden.

This sounds like a great idea. I love the tiny patio scene. How do you keep them alive with no sunshine streaming in the windows?

Nice..but I would want to grow teenie-tiny tomatoes and itty-bitty carrots.

Tina Lane - I think you have to select plants that do not need much sunlight but place the garden near a window.

JJ - Love that kind of garden. Eenie little heads of lettuce too!
