What's a Fairy Garden?

Have you been hearing about all the fun and creativity so many gardeners and hobbyists are having with their Fairy Garden? Not sure what it’s all about? Not sure where to get started? Then this is the article for you!

A fairy garden appeals to the whimsical side in gardeners. A fairy garden is a miniature garden complete with structures and actual living plants. They’re designed to give your green thumb a place to tend year-round. It’s a tiny space that’s created and tended with love; and they’re limited only by your imagination. They may be small in size, but the possibilities are nearly overwhelming; if you’ve been looking for a great place to pour your creative spirit into, look no further than your own little world, called a fairy garden!

These miniature little gardens are for people who are looking for a wonderfully creative way to express themselves all within the comfort of their own backyard. An outdoor fairy garden can be as small or large as your area allows. Choose a spot beneath a Hosta-leaf, under a tree in a shady spot, in a birdbath or on an abandoned tree stump.

Add a bench, a tiny birdhouse and a bird bath and you have a secluded place for fairies to linger. If you have room, add a path that leads to a lighted house complete with a picket fence.

Plant small terrarium-sized plants like baby tears or ivies. Hang a tire swing on a nearby branch! The possibilities are endless! When you decide to build a fairy garden, you’re embark on what many have found to be an enjoyable and creative hobby, and there’s only one thing you really need to do; unleash your imagination!
