Miniature Gardens...





I'm really not the type of person who falls for fads. Same goes for gardening--I've never owned a garden gnome, or had any type of lawn ornament, but I've fallen for terrariums and miniature gardens...

I've had the standing terrarium for a few years and hadn't done much with it until now, but I think it's the perfect set-up for my small scale garden. I've seen some extreme miniature gardens, but this is pretty simple--a few pricey lawn ornaments, ivy, Baby Tears and dried moss. 





I don't have the best of luck with indoor plants, but hopefully I can keep this garden alive until spring :)

  1. I love 'em too Becks. There's something about miniature gardens isn't there. Maybe it's just that I like to march around them saying 'fee fi fo fum' etc., etc,...

    Do you have any Bonzai trees too? I tried but they were way too tricky for me.

  7. Absolutely lovely!
    I thought of trying a miniature garden in a gallon jug. Maybe now that the outside garden is over until Spring, I'll try it.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  17. This is the neatest thing I've ever seen (well, at least lately) I love it! I've had dollhouses for years but I've never tried a mini-terrarium garden. This is next on my list of things to make. Thanks so much for sharing! :)
