Want a garden but don’t have the space, time, or money?  Or you want something that can be easily maintained all year? Try a container minature !  Purchase some fun miniatures to set the tone of your garden – realistic, whimsical, romantic, etc. Great miniatures can be purchased online (or favs are below) or at your local craft store.

Choose a suitable container, something with a large enough surface to place all your miniatures, and then start planting tiny plants and other goodies. Use stones, twigs, and more and make buildings, bridges, and more that fairies would use to get around.You can also use everyday items like a thimble for a washbasin (think “The Borrowers” which is a fabulous series of books to listen to or read-out-loud while you’re building your garden), feathers for bedding, etc. Bring in tiny pine cones for trees, pebbles for paths, etc.
