Miniature Gardens


Create an imaginative, miniature garden! Enter a world where tiny plants become tall trees, in among which fairies dance and play, and natural materials are imaginatively transformed into a magical landscape. A great family activity for all ages!

Things You'll Need:

Step 1: Prepare Container
Fill your container with potting soil. Be sure the container has a hole at the base to provide proper drainage for the plants. In the absence of drainage holes, you can add a layer of gravel at the base of the container.

Step 2: Plant the Landscape
Follow each plant's tag instructions, and plant accordingly TIP: Before removing each plant from it's plastic container, try arranging them within the larger container to decide what layout will best work for your miniature garden. Be sure to consider the placement of any fairies and décor within your design. After you've made the final decisions on placement, remove each plant from its plastic container. Gently break up the root ball, then place within the soil. Make sure the top of the root ball is level with the top of the soil. After all materials have been planted, water your container.

Step 3: Add Fairies and Décor
Get creative and make a once imaginary landscape into reality. Add your fairies and other features then use small twigs, sticks, pebbles, moss and more to create furniture, walkways, & beds. Other ideas to consider include miniature reflecting ponds, picnic areas, lawn ornaments, and more.  Use your imagination while creating your miniature garden. The possibilities are endless!
