Farmfresh suggested we create a thread on this subject so here it is!



This is the Fairy Garden that I created this morning, I was going for a tropical-ish theme.

Thanks Patrice! I just love this idea.

Here’s a container garden I put together too.



Really the only difference between Fairy Gardens and container gardens is the ornaments you add to the container. In a fairy garden you are creating a scene or a room where a fairy or gnome would live or visit.

The sky’s the limit with regards to plants or decorations, pick whatever you love and add them to a container. You can even add small strings of battery operated lights or solar stakes.

It just keeps getting cuter! Where did you get those lights?

Thanks calendula, I cannot wait to see what your kids made. It’s such a good way to get kids into gardening!

This is Lily and Palmer’s fairy garden. It is in a rectangular planter, the type you’d put on a window sill. We would like to transfer it to something a little bigger, but not so big that I can’t easily bring it into the house over winter. We have some pansies, hen and chicks, and a couple other plants that I don’t remember the names of right now.
