The Evolution of the Miniature Garden
Hey! Pssst! Wanna buy a forest?
We are enjoying the new miniature garden plant sizes now that we have the major nurseries across America growing smaller, to meet the needs of mini and fairy gardeners across the nation – and the world for that matter. A recent garden center trade magazine cited a new trend in smaller plants coming from Europe. Huh? What? It is SO already here, Buddy! Perhaps our gardens were too small for him to see – but wait – now the plants are getting even smaller. Lol!
If you loved our mini and dwarf conifers for your miniature or fairy gardens, you’ll love the new sizes of tree that are now in stock. Tiny trees and shrubs in 2 ¼” pots are quite possibly, the cutest plants on the planet. Here are a few of them that we’ve been working with over the last year – and yes, I will get back to that forest for sale.
If you haven’t tried our miniature garden plants in your miniature, or fairy gardens yet, how about it? We have been growing with the same trees since we started professionally miniature gardening 15 years ago. We still amazed at how they maintain their small size but develop a majestic look in miniature. They truly are a delight to grow. Here are some previous posts where you can find more photos of our plants and trees after a couple/few years of growing:
And here is your forest! We have two different sets of six tiny trees that could easily be grown together to create a miniature magical forest. Oh my, I think I just inspired myself – I need to go make one now, that sounds like too much fun. Lol!
Geez, I’m like a kid in a candy store with these little guys! See all the sets and combinations here in our New and Back in Stock Department. Just a note that the 2 1/4″ conifers are just babies, and need protection from any extremes until they grow up a bit.
