What is Miniature Gardening?

It’s just like a full-sized garden but it’s miniature, a ton of fun, a LOT cuter AND you can take it with you!

Small scale trees and plants are combined with in-scale accessories and patios to make a real, living garden in miniature that can grow and weave itself together for years – just like a full sized garden.

Miniature gardens can be grown in a container, or in-ground in a garden bed, with minimal care. When planted correctly, (it’s not hard to do!) the plants and trees stay in scale with each other to create a sustainable, true garden in miniature.

“Minimal care” really means it will need regular watering and the garden will need some transplanting, dividing and, depending upon the plant, some pruning – maybe. It’s a garden so it will grow and change with the seasons.
