I started planting up old and discarded containers, shoes, tea cups, bottles, tricycles,etc. around 2002 when I worked at Geneva Greenhouse. It is amazing what one could do with plants and how they seem to thrive in the oddest vessels! And, with today’s busy lifestyles, it’s often difficult to find time to garden. For those of us who crave getting our fingers into the soil, our taking care of plants or who just don’t have a backyard, a miniature garden has become a viable alternative. When one speaks of miniature gardening, fairy gardening often comes to mind. But, fairy gardening is just one aspect of gardening in small form.
But, miniature gardening encompasses so much more. Moss Rocks, by David Spain, are beautiful little pieces of art. They are easy to care for and are very Zen for your home or office.
Small pots can be transformed into tiny places of relaxation.
This garden is planted in an antique lunch box and can be taken with you where ever you go. Just close it up, carry it by the handle and open it when you need a little life in your life!
Hanging terrarium orbs are my newest obsession. They can be can be planted with scenes-
Or, they look beautiful with tillandsias –
Terrariums can be directly planted or precious orchids can be housed and showcased safely inside-
When is comes to gardening, one is only limited by their imagination. It can be done on large scale or 1 1/2 inch scale-
It can be a delicate and sophisticated Tea Party-
The Choice is yours.What ever you choose- Enjoy 🙂
