Fairy gardens can best be described as containers with added extras. In effect they are a miniature domestic scene created in a planter, but this is a theme that lends itself to endless possibilities as you will discover from the gallery below. In addition to the pictures this article by Marisa Hammond Olivares which I came across on the Dengarden website includes instructions on how you can make your own fairy garden.
Miniature fairy gardens are fun and adorable. In some regions, miniature fairy gardens are called, enchanted gardens. Regardless, they are a delight to create. Who says you are too big to play with fairies? Try it and you just may be hooked to a new hobby.
If you like creating village scenes for Christmas, you will definitely enjoy getting creative with your own personal enchanted fairy garden. Fairy gardens can be created in small containers, or they can be expanded into rock gardens and multiple containers. Choose plants that can be easily trimmed and suit the lighting of your patio or deck. You may want to place your garden near an outlet and add a few extras such as, miniature lights or miniature water fountains.
