Gardening in Miniature is Launched PLUS Northwest Tour Dates!

Gardening in Miniature Book

Now available at a bookseller near you!

Timber Press officially launches its campaign for our brand, spankin’ new book, Gardening in Miniature: How to Create Your Own Tiny Living World next week. Let the fun begin! Life on earth will never be the same… garden history is forever changed! Yay!

For those who have been following our journey over the last decade, you’ll know what a milestone this is for us. For those who have just joined us, welcome to the cutest and most creative hobby in the whole-wide-world – miniature gardening where craft meets garden. Really, how fun is that?

We snuck the news out to our email list last month, and those of you that got a copy, congrats on nabbing a first edition! A second edition printing has already been ordered, they were afraid of running out. And, hey, Timber Press, be afraid… be VERY afraid! ;o)

More Bragging Rights

Gardening in Miniature has already topped several charts on Amazon. Over the last few of weeks, we’ve maintained the #1 spot in the Miniatures Department, we’ve occupied either the #1 or #2 position in Flower Gardening, AND we’ve maintained the #1 position in the Hot New Releases for Garden and Landscape this past week. I’ll take it!

Insert the happy dance here.

    I live in Olympia, will you be doing A seminar closer to my home city?


    • Hi Kathy, We’re only an hour away from you and I have one more gig this Sunday. There is more info in the book than I can fit into a seminar. ;o)


  2. I didn’t realize what a HUGE tiny world I was stepping into when I created my first miniature garden! I am enjoying your very beautiful and informative book, and was so happy to meet you at Molbaks and see your presentation! More ideas are abounding….. so glad you enjoyed my miniature outdoor art studio!
