The Most Creative Review on Gardening in Miniature Book
As the book reviews keep flowing in and around the Internet, one stands out among the rest as the most creative book review I’ve read – never mind receiving. Paul Riddell is the imaginative brain behind The Texas Triffid Ranch. His slogan is “Odd Plants and Oddities for Odd People,” he had me at the word “odd.” Lol! Check out this book review and let me know if you’ve ever come across one that is more creative than this:
And here’s a couple of more links to his miniature garden research and suggestions on his blog. Paul has had a love for dinosaurs since childhood and miniature gardening was one of the ways he would play and learn about them. Do a search on his blog for ‘miniature garden’ and you’ll get to more of his info, resources and ideas on tools, books, dioramas and more. Especially if you have young boys around – you’ll love his take on miniature gardening.
Paul also does a ton of work with promoting unusual plants through his nursery, lectures and trade shows in the northern Texas area. One of his specialities is carnivorous plants – some of which come in miniature, I might add! He also specializes in prehistoric plants and vivariums.
