Miniature Garden Inspiration

Miniature gardens are a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in or to enjoy a fun, whimsical mini space outdoors.
Let your imagination fly:
1. find a container that you really like (a planter, wagon, vintage roasting pot, wooden box or drawer, etc).
2. add soil and plants (herbs or low growing ground covers work fabulously. Moss can be a great accent too).
3. add your miniature garden accessories, perhaps even a pea gravel walk.
4. water and enjoy!

I've loved using miniature gardens for wedding and event centerpieces.  They make a wonderful gift to give or receive.  Simply a great garden idea for urban dwellers, home chefs, beginning or master gardeners, children...  really anyone who would like to enjoy a beautiful, easy to maintain, portable garden.

See our Etsy shop for the garden miniature accessories that are available through Forrester Farm.  Let the inspiration begin!
