Miniature Gardens: The Fun is Contagious

The front page of this year’s Timber Press catalog – a la miniature gardening!

Miniature Gardens: The Fun is Contagious

If you aren’t part of the retail industry, chances are you won’t see this at all. The miniature garden pictures in this blog are from the spring edition of the Timber Press book catalog.

Who would have thunk?

.

As far as I can glean from the hallowed halls of Timber Press, this garden was created by Laken, one of the resident designers at Timber, and my editor, Andrew Beckman, a.k.a. Editor-in-Chief / Associate Publisher of Timber Press.

How’s that for contagious fun?

We also learned that when Andrew introduced this new book at “the big meeting in New York” he flew the plants, parts and pieces in his luggage to plant up an example in his hotel to show everyone what a miniature garden is.

I guess they enjoyed it.

My guesstimate that this pot is about 20 to 22″ wide – a nice size for a miniature garden because it gives you lots of room to layer in the plants and trees – and enough room for a big patio for your patio furniture, barbeque or a potting bench.

Our Gardening in Miniature book is due out in the stores this July. Join us here for the release party coming up this spring and you’ll also get our free monthly newsletter, the Mini Garden Gazette.
