Miniature Garden with pond and trellis

Miniature Garden ponds are simply fun to work in to a pot or in the ground. After this shot was taken, we floated a leave on top of the surface – too cute! That’s a Blue Star Juniper on the left, the Compressa Juniper is to the right.

Miniature Garden with a Miniature Gardener Tribute

Miniature Garden with a mini garden tribute: a wee chair, pots and bird on a pedestal. That’s a Jean Iseli Hinoki Cypress, with the New Zealand Brass Buttons on the left and Scottish Moss on the right. The big(ger) rosettes are Hens and Chicks.

Miniature Farm Garden with real miniature tomatoes called ‘Tom Thumb.’ The other vegetables are single Hen and Chicks lined up to look like cabbages. We’ll see how it grows together once we get it back from the show.

Miniature Farm Garden bird's eye view.

The blue tree in the upper left corner is a Squarrosa Intermedia Sawara Cypress that has been trained to look like a miniature orchard tree.

Miniature Garden in a trug - you can take it with you!

Miniature Garden in a trug is just too sweet of a combination! That lovely shrub on the left behind the bench is a Cis Korean Fir, the vine on the right is Pixie Clematis.

Miniature Garden with Fairy Bed

Miniature fairy beds are fun to decorate how you like. We used sheet moss for the mattress and reindeer moss for the pillows. That’s an artificial garland twirled up the canopy of the bed.

Fun with tiny miniature garden pots
